In case you don't know about TubaChristmas, here is a bit of history.

TubaChristmas was founded on Sunday, December 22, 1974, when over 300 tuba and euphonium players gathered on the Ice Rink Stage of New York's Rockefeller Center to honor the memory of William J. Bell (born Christmas Day, 1902) and to celebrate his considerable achievements as a performer and teacher. The arrangements of traditional Christmas carols performed on that historic occasion were contributed by American composer Alec Wilder (died Christmas Eve, 1980). It is therefore fitting that every TubaChristmas be dedicated to great performers who gave us our methods and pedagogy, and to all the composers who have embraced our instruments with their solo and ensemble compositions. It is important that we share with the public audience this celebration of our heritage. It is an opportunity to demonstrate our serious commitment to music and to showcase the beauty of our instruments in ensemble. Anyone who has heard a TubaChristmas concert will never forget the experience. It is no wonder that since 1974 TubaChristmas has become a tradition in cities throughout the world.
