MBA's Christmas Tuba Festival (established 2002) provides an opportunity for tuba and euphonium players from across Manitoba to gather in December to perform a concert of Christmas carols on the Piano Nobile level of the Manitoba Centennial Concert Hall for Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra patrons.
It is suggested that you download and print the music and many find it helpful to us a three ring binder and to place the music in program order. The Program order will be sent by email in the fall.

- Euphoniums play part 1 or 2 (your choice). Euphonium parts are written in bass clef and treble clef.
