The spirit of the TubaSantas and TubaChristmas lives on despite the death of their founder, tuba professor Harvey Phillips. We’ll speak with his successor at IU and longtime friend Dan Perantoni about Mr. Phillips’ legacy and the joy of tubas at Christmastime.
Joss Marsh will read “O’Brien’s First Christmas.” This short story from author Jeannette Winterson tells the tale of a woman who has always felt like an outsider during the holiday season… until a stranger appears one night at the foot of her bed.
