18th annual TubaChristmas at AU to take place Dec. 2

ASHLAND, Ohio – Ashland University’s version of TubaChristmas will be taking place this Saturday, Dec. 2, at Hugo Young Theatre. The concert, featuring traditional holiday favorites, is free and open to the public and will start at noon.

Hundreds, maybe even thousands, of TubaChristmas events take place throughout the world. The first such concert was held in 1974 and now ensembles everywhere take the opportunity to showcase seasonal melodies from tubas, euphoniums, baritones and sousaphones. Saturday’s TubaChristmas will mark the 18th held at Ashland.

Scott Garlock, professor of music at AU, will conduct TubaChristmas and encourages one and all to attend one of “the most unique and fun Christmas sounds that you can sing along with.”

He added, “It’s free, it’s fun and it’s festive.”
