More than 300 tuba and baritone players will gather for the 43rd annual TubaChristmas concert. Presented by Andrew Hudson's Jobs List and produced by the University of Colorado Denver's College of Arts & Media, the TubaChristmas Concert is one of the most celebrated and longest-running holiday festivities in Colorado.
Bill Clark, retired professor of Music at the University of Colorado Denver, has been conductor of the TubaChristmas performance since its inception in 1976. As the event's pioneer, Clark has grown the event to include students from over 30 high schools, in addition to independent musicians about the region. Participants have ranged in ages from 7 to 86, and instruments include tubas, sousaphones, baritones, euphoniums, antique tubas from the Civil War era, decorated tubas, and more.
