• TubaChristmas originated in Bloomington in 1974 when Distinguished Professor emeritus of music Harvey Phillips, “the Paganini of the tuba,” invited local tubists to don red suits and beards to raise funds for charity. That same year, Phillips gathered hundreds of East Coast tubists at New York City’s Rockefeller Center, beginning a national movement of TubaSanta performances. He founded TubaChristmas in memory of William J. Bell, the dean of American tubists and Phillips’ predecessor at the IU School of Music, who was born on Christmas Day, 1902.
