Holiday tuba concert coming next weekend
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.
