Joy TUBA World!
Kick off a BOOMING holiday season with an assortment of holiday songs and good cheer. Tuba Christmas is non-denominational in spirit and musical program.  ANYONE with a tuba, a sousaphone, a euphonium, a baritone, or virtually any low brass horn is WELCOME to perform.  However, every musician must REGISTER and attend REHEARSAL.  (Please read all details below.)   From the novice beginner to the accomplished virtuoso, ANYONE of ANY age can come play...or join the singing audience!  Started in Los Angeles in 1974, Tuba Christmas is now celebrated throughout the country and the world, from L.A. to New York, from Chicago to New Orleans, as well as from London to Tokyo...and now SAN DIEGO!  Where there are tubas, you will find Tuba Christmas.
