TubaChristmas 2020

Cedar Rapids Area
Merry TubaChristmas 2020

The 19th annual Cedar Rapids Area Merry TubaChristmas concert is scheduled for 2:00PM Saturday, December 5, 2020.

Yes, we are having a Greater Cedar Rapids Area Merry TubaChristmas event for 2020
and yes, due to COVID-19, it will be quite different than previous years!

This year our event will be a virtual streaming event via Facebook.

So many cities have canceled and are doing nothing this year.
But, thank you Steve Shanley - Director of the Cedar Rapids Municpal Band, for helping us find a way to celebrate our unique event!

Date: Saturday, Dec 5, 2020

Time: 2:00PM

Web address: https://www.facebook.com/CRMuniBand

This year we have partnered with the Cedar Rapids Municipal Band to produce an on-line streaming event via Facebook. The low brass quartet from the Municipal Band will perform the usual line-up of great Christmas tunes from past TubaChristmas concerts.
These musicians are volunteers and will follow social distancing guidelines during this performance.

Thank you Muni Band low brass quartet for doing this!!!

On Dec 5 go to the web address listed above to listen in and play along with the quartet from your home!

The quartet will not be able to hear us but we can all play along with this all-star accompaniment
and remain safe and comfortable in our own homes.

So find your TubaChristmas music, grease up the slides, oil the valves and pump up the volume! And the most important thing ------- have fun!

A playlist will be posted here as soon as it is finalized.

Note: Since this is a virtual event, there will not be any registration fee, and there will be no merchandise,
music books or buttons for sale locally this year.
However, music books and merchandise (not buttons) can be ordered at http://www.tubachristmas.com/merchandise.htm

Check back often as any updates will be posted on this site. We are still working on a couple of ideas!
