TubaChristmas Kansas City - Friday December 7, 2018

Postby Frank Byrne » Thu Aug 16, 2018 2:41 pm

Please join us for the region's biggest and best TubaChristmas event on Friday December 7th at the Municipal Arena in downtown Kansas City, hosted by the Kansas City Symphony.

We've arranged to use the Municipal Arena so everyone can be together for one performance and enjoy the camaraderie of this great holiday tradition. Here are the details:

8:30 a.m. - Registration begins
9:30 a.m. - Rehearsal begins
Noon- 1 p.m. - Free public performance

Our conductor again this year will be Prof. Scott Watson from the University of Kansas and we are working on another special guest or two to be announced later. You can pre-register for the event here:

Registration is already filling up fast, so please don't delay getting your registration in. We're going to have an amazing event and hope to see you there!

Frank,
I'm aware of a bookmark in your illustrious career.
I would like to thank and congratulate you for what you've done in Kansas City,
and would also like to point out that if more executive directors were like
Mr. Byrne, the industry of symphonic music in America would be exploding,
rather than maintaining, and - further - would be virtually recession proof.

8) (= "like")

I realize that it is an epic and record-breaking annual event. I do have relatives there (retired highway construction contractors) who designed/built (among other things) Highway 10 between KC and Lawrence. I just don't think that I could quite be back in Memphis and ready to rehearse by 9 A.M. on Saturday. :?

Since it will coincide with Pearl Harbor Day (Dec. 7) and will be the 77th anniversary of "a date that will live in infamy", I wonder if one of your hundreds of participants might write a short tuba/euphonium arrangement of one of the main themes from the Rodgers/Bennett "Victory At Sea" to play ? :tuba:
