Christmas tuba concert returning to Denver

December 11, 2013 by  

Centennial residents are invited to celebrate the holiday season by enjoying a unique musical performance in nearby Denver.

In less than two weeks’ time, the TubaChristmas Concert will be arriving at the city’s Skyline Park. A print company may be producing promotional posters and flyers for this event.

This will be the concert’s 39th year in Denver. It will feature at least 300 tuba players, the majority of whom reside in Colorado. The musicians will play a number of classic holiday favorites for the crowd, including ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘Frosty the Snowman’.

Students and faculty members from the College of Arts and Media at Denver’s University of Colorado campus are producing the event. The area around the park will be decorated with red ribbons, wreaths, and other Christmas trimmings, adding a greater sense of festivity to the occasion.

Anyone who plays the tuba will be welcome to participate in the performance. Those who wish to perform will need to arrive at the Auraria Event Center (1255 Tenth Street Mall) on the morning of the concert. Registration will begin at 9:00 am and cost $10. Rehearsal will start at 10:00 am. Bill Clark will serve as this year’s conductor.

TubaChristmas concerts will be taking place in a number of other major cities this month, including New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas. Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, and Grand Junction will also be hosting shows.

The Denver concert will run from 1:00 pm until 2:00 pm on Sunday, December 22. It will be free to the public.

Skyline Park is located at 1600 Arapahoe Street.
