Christmas music sounds really nice played on low brass instruments. Each year tuba players gather in cities around the country to spread holiday cheer with Merry Tuba Christmas concerts.

The Tuba Christmas tradition started right here in New York City, with a 1974 concert held at Rockefeller Center. The 2016 event is the 43rd annual Merry Tuba Christmas concert held at Rockefeller Center.

The concert takes place on the ice rink at Rockefeller Center. Come out, enjoy the music, and sing along with holiday favorites.  The free concert begins at 3:30 pm on Sunday, December 11th, 2016.  NYC Tuba Christmas Concert Details.
