Tuba Christmas 2013

After brunch at Osteria Marco yesterday, hundreds gathered in Skyline Park downtown to watch tuba players from across the country to play Christmas carols. Ranging in age from 6 to 90 years old, and with a variety of tubas, the group played for an hour. Not only was there beautiful music, singing broke out through the crowd as well. We can’t wait for next year! What a great way to join the community in getting ready for Christmas.
