Saturday, Dec. 1

Low brass players will raise their voices on high for this 17th annual concert of carols sacred and secular. Audience members will hear everything from “O Holy Night” and “Away in a Manger” to “Rudolph” and “Winter Wonderland.” Even “Jingle Bells” will have a new jangle when tubas, sousaphones, baritones and euphoniums unite. If you play one of these instruments, deck it — and yourself — in seasonal style and join in on the fun. All ages and skill levels are welcome; prizes will be awarded for oldest and youngest players, farthest traveled and best decorations. Participation, registration, rehearsal and concert details are listed at Crtubachristmas.com
