The 44th Annual Tuba Christmas is taking place Saturday, December 8th at Loeb Playhouse. It's a tradition started by tuba player and professor Harvey Philips in honor his teacher and mentor William Bell, who was born on Christmas Day! Over 80 musicians will perform holiday favorites on low brass instruments including euphoniums, sousaphones, and tubas.

WBAA's John Clare spoke with Jay Gephart and Jonathan Sweet about the program, and how you can participate!
