Tuba ChristmasTuba

Happy Face
December 14--Washington, DC--TubaChristmas, the brainchild of Professor Harvey Phillips, Music Professor at Indiana University, 43 years ago to celebrate the TUBA and Euphonium and to honor his mentor William H. Bell.  Concerts are played all over the world.  Players volunteer and come to practice hours before the concert.  The Washington DC concert was played in Orchestra Hall at the Kennedy Center.  

I photographed my first TubaChristmas 39 years ago at the town square in Bloomington, IN.  Harvey Phillips dressed as Santa Claus led the concert.  This year I sat in the fourth row enjoying the legacy Professor Phillips gave us.  

All photos made with the Nikon 1V3, and Nikkor 70-200, 12,800 ISO
