Tuba Christmas, Pioneer Courthouse Square, December 10, 2011


I arrived on scene about 10 minutes before Tuba Christmas began, all 225 tubas would play to a standing room only crowd, one Christmas carol after another. Realizing I would not find anywhere to sit and that I wouldn't care because it was so doggone cold, I walked close to these two bass tubas--is that what you call these humongous instruments? Aren't they heavy? I don't know. But I do know that the man on the left played a beat on his tuba that had everyone getting their groove on. Then the man on the right and he challenged each other, vibrating the air around us magnificently, bringing smiles to nearby faces.

the one on the right is a C.G. Conn Grand Jumbo 46k, and the one on the left is a C.G. Conn 20k, as is the one in the middle, which I am playing.
