TUBACHRISTMAS hits Pine Centre Mall Saturday


For the first time in Prince George’s history, we’re having a TUBACHRISTMAS.

Prince George Symphony Orchestra tuba player Matt Wood and local high school music teacher Sam Nelles have put the event together, which is, basically, a bunch of tuba and euphonium players getting together to play Christmas Carols in a public setting.

That public setting will be Pine Centre Mall on Saturday, December 9, at 1 p.m.

It’s a fun event that will see many high-school musicians from around the North participating. When people think tuba, they think oom-pah and not much more. These players are going to show how great these instruments can sound.

This year marks the 44th anniversary of TUBACHRISTMAS, and there are only seven Canadian cities participating: Prince George, Brandon, Kamloops, Kelowna, Lethbridge, Victoria, and Vancouver.
