The main event of the weekend - Tuba Christmas! I first heard about this from my friend Lori in October and resolved to participate. I rented a baritone horn in San Diego when I was home for Thanksgiving, flew it across the country, and I was ready to go.
Tuba Christmas. What can you say about it? It was 500 tuba and euphonium players on the ice rink at the Rockefeller Center with hundreds of people watching. I don't envy the poor conductor who tried to make us sound decent while the rain poured down around us, but I had a blast! I might find some pictures in the future... until then, enjoy the pictures Matt took ofSantaCon 09!
