Every instrument has a right to shine, and tubas and euphoniums have staked out Christmas as their glory-moment. Polished instruments gleam as their owners proudly perform music originally designed for angels and harps. The mass effect of multiple tubas and their cousins must bring unexpected joy at the surprising combination. …a bit like dancing hippos in tutus. Smiling is irresistible!!
Bellingham Music Club invites you to its Christmas offerings for 2017: Wednesday morning, December 6 at 10:30 for a one-hour concert at Trinity Lutheran, free and open to the public, followed the next evening by a full-length program on Night Beat with the Tubas, December 7 at 7:30, at First Congregational Church. Tickets are $20 general, $15 seniors, on sale at Village Books and Food Co-op locations and online PLUS Take-a-teen-for-free!!
Led by Carla Rutschman, the WWU Low Brass Ensemble will delight you with a program that spans five centuries, and includes Medieval chant, Renaissance compositions, traditional carols and secular pieces, as well as more recent compositions demonstrating the unique sonorities of these mellow tuba-fellows.
