We need your baritone, euphonium, tuba, and sousaphone students to form our annual ensemble for TUBACHRISTMAS.

We have been performing seasonal music in downtown Ann Arbor since 1997. Our performers have ranged in age from 12 to 60+ and in ability from middle school band student to professional performer. We do our best to pair younger players with more experienced musicians.

We rehearse for two hours and then perform a concert with as many carols as we can prepare. Key signatures range from C to Ab. Anyone who can play eighth notes and a couple of tunes in 6/8 is ready to join us.

We perform from the same quartet book each year. The one-time cost of the book is $16. Bass clef and treble clef versions are available at registration. The registration fee is $10.

TUBACHRISTMAS was founded by Harvey Phillips in 1974. More information about the history of the event and other performances throughout the United States can be found at www.tubachristmas.com

Every effort is made to best fit each student with the marching uniforms and tuxedos that are available. Please help keep them in great condition for years to come by following the Uniform Care and Wear Instructions noted below.

The MSBOA District Solo and Ensemble Festival will be held on Saturday, February 1st, 2020 at Livonia Franklin High School. This is an excellent opportunity to grow as a player. You can choose a solo (preferably with piano accompaniment) and/or an ensemble. You would play for a judge who has experience on the instrument you are playing, and will receive comments and a rating from Division I to V, I being the highest. The rating is equivalent to a letter grade. This is not a ranking. If you receive a Division I or a Division II rating, you will receive a medal, included in your entry fee. If you receive a Division I, you are also eligible to participate in the State Solo and Ensemble Festival held on Saturday, March 14th, 2020. More information on that will follow closer to the date.
