Merry Tuba Christmas 2011

Yesterday, we went to the St. Louis Galleria for what has seemingly become a family tradition: Merry Tuba Christmas.

We got there early, so that we could walk around the mall, and look at all the decorations, (and see it “snow” by the big mall Christmas tree!).

Since we were there so early, we got a good view of the Tuba Christmas setup–Turkey really liked this candy cane tuba.

Seeing all of the empty chairs from above just emphasizes how large this tuba choir is–over 90 tubas and euphoniums!

We finished our walk just in time to enjoy the music–except for Moose. He thought it was too loud! Actually, it was really loud–that many big brass instruments together make a lot of noise!

It’s such a weird, quirky event, but it’s also really fun. I love seeing all of the decorated tubas, and all of the players dressed in the festive garb of the season.

And you just can’t beat the sound of that many tubas playing together!
