  • Feel free to decorate your instrument as well.
  • Official TUBACHRISTMAS hats and scarves will also be available at the registration table or through the online store.


Please let us know in advance that you will be coming. This is not required, but very helpful.  This will make sure we have enough buttons, music, chairs, etc. for everyone. You may also register at the door, but we may run out of music or buttons.
