Prince Avenue Christian School band members participated in the Athens Tuba Christmas Concert at the Classic Center on December 3.
Tuba Christmas was founded in 1974 by Harvey Phillips, Professor of Tuba at Indiana University to honor his teacher, William Bell who was born on Christmas day in 1907. The first Tuba Christmas performance was given by over 300 musicians in New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza. In the years since, Tuba Christmas has grown into an international event performed by hundreds of thousands of tuba and euphonium players in cities throughout the world.
