All-call for tuba players for Christmas concert

Tuba, baritone and euphonium players are being sought to participate in "Tubachristmas 2007," a public concert on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 2 p.m. at Coastal Grande Mall. The free concert will take place in front of Dick's Sporting Goods and Old Navy at the mall.

Anyone who plays tuba, baritone or euphonium is welcome to join the group, according to conductor Jim Tully, Coastal Carolina University associate professor of music and director of bands, and Brent Kastor, CCU adjunct instructor and coordinator of the event.

Registration is scheduled at 10:30 a.m. on the morning of the event at Coastal Carolina University Band Hall, 1270 Atlantic Ave., Conway. Rehearsal will follow at 11 a.m. Registration fee is $5.

Tubachristmas concerts are held around the world. The event was conceived in 1974 as a tribute to the late musician/teacher William J. Bell, who was born on Christmas Day, 1902. The first Tubachristmas was conducted by the late Paul Lavalle in New York City's Rockefeller Plaza Ice Rink on Sunday, Dec. 22, 1974. Traditional Christmas music performed at the first Tubachristmas was arranged by American composer Alec Wilder.
