Saturday  Dec 7th                                   7pm 
This year marks the 40th anniversary for TUBACHRISTMAS concerts/events which are presented throughout the world.  Tuba and baritone/euphonium players of all ages, skill levels, and from all walks of life gather to play Christmas music arranged specifically for their instruments.  TUBACHRISTMAS was conceived in 1974 by Harvey Phillips as a tribute to his teacher and mentor William J. Bell, born on Christmas Day, 1902.  These concerts reflect on our heritage and honor all great artists/teachers whose legacy has given us high performance standards, well structured pedagogy, professional integrity, personal values and a camaraderie envied by all other instrumentalists.

This performance will be the fourth time in five years that the event has been held in Logan.  More information about the TUBACHRISTMAS organization can be found at the TUBACHRISTMAS website: http://tubachristmas.com/

Using four octaves of English handbells and four octaves of chimes, the 18 members of the Westminster Bell Choirs will fill the Tabernacle with the sounds of familiar Christmas hymns and carols. The two choirs will use a variety of techniques to enliven such sacred and secular favorites as “Away in a Manger,” “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear,” and “Go, Tell It On the Mountain.” The concert will also include a piece by the Runaway Bell Quartet; an appearance by the First Presbyterian children’s bell choir; an opportunity for the audience to sing along with the bells; and special music by talented friends Kermit Herd and Elisabeth Evans. The Westminster Bell Choirs are interfaith groups sponsored by Logan’s First Presbyterian Church.
