Tuba concert coming Dec. 9
The annual Tubaphonia Christmas Concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 9, in the North Kingstown High School Auditorium, Fairway Drive, North Kingstown.
This free concert features musicians of all ages from Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut, playing an amazing array of low, conical brass horns, including baritones and euphoniums (even a double-bell), ophecleids, cimbassos, helicons, sousaphones, and, of course, tubas of all sizes.
The group will perform traditional carols as well as light-hearted seasonal favorites, and provide many opportunities for the audience to sing-along with the big horns. Nationally-renowned tubist Gary Buttery will lead the talented assemblage as he has for many years.
The concert is sponsored by the Wickford Branch of Centerville Bank, the North Kingstown Arts Council, and the Rhode Island Council for the Arts.
