TUBACHRISTMAS first started in 1973 by Harvey Phillips to honor his teacher Bill Bell, another great tubist, who was born in
on Christmas Day in 1902. TUBACHRISTMAS
also recognizes Alec Wilder, a composer who arranged many of the songs
performed at TUBACHRISTMAS who passed away on Christmas Eve in 1980. TUBACHRISTMAS celebrates all teachers of the
tuba and euphonium and composers who have contributed to the playing of these
instruments. You can read more about TUBACHRISTMAS
