I'm excited to be conducting Antioch's Tuba Christmas again this year! It's on Sunday, December 18th. Ms. Arlona is doing a fantastic job of organizing and setting up all the logistics. Remember, this is also open to euphonium and baritone players as well!
Sign up is Sunday, December 18th at 2:30pm, and rehearsal is 3:00pm - 5:30pm. Rehearsal is at the Antioch Township Building, 1625 N Deep Lake Rd, Lake Villa, IL (same as last year). After rehearsal is a pasta dinner! Registration fee is $10, and that includes the pasta dinner. It is mandatory to attend rehearsal to perform in the concert.
The concert is FREE and open to the public. The performance will be at Faith Lutheran Church 24300 W Grass Lake Road, Antioch IL. (Same as last year). There will be a post concert reception with some of the best hot cocoa and cookies available in the in tuba world!
There is a free Tuba Christmas clinic for 5th-8th graders on Sunday, December 11th from 1:00pm - 3:00pm. The location is at Antioch Township Building, 1625 N Deep Lake Rd, Lake Villa, IL (same as last year). I strongly recommend our 5th-8th grade tuba/euphonium brothers and sisters attend this. Also, older students are welcome to come and help play by example.
Tuba Christmas music books are available at Mad Plaid Music in Antioch (911 Main Street). See Ms. Trish at the store, and she will know exactly what you need! We will have books available at rehearsal, but please try to purchase your music ahead of time, and to have fun practicing. The cost of the small book is $20, and large print is $25.
Attached is the flyer. Feel free to hand out to friends, family, and anyone who enjoys Christmas music!
If you have any questions, let me know. You can also contact Ms. Arlona at SequoitTuba@gmail.com, or phone at 847-209-9121.
Thank you, and Merry Tuba Christmas!
