Hello Tuba and Euphonium Players

September 26, 2020


Dear Past Participant in TubaChristmas,

It is with regret that I inform you that the 2020 Tuba Christmas sponsored by UM-Flint has been cancelled.

As you might know, our campus is currently operating with most classes meeting virtually although we are able to rehearse our music ensembles; however, the campus will be moving completely online after 20 November 2020.

In addition, the campus has been closed to visitors for the entire semester and restrictions by Michigan's Governor regarding the gathering of groups indoors has also influenced our ability to meet, rehearse, and perform at the Farmers' Market.

There are groups that are planning to hold an event in Michigan and here is a link for TubaChristmas:


And, one for the state of Michigan:


Thank you so much for your participation. The last several years, you have been fantastic in your willingness to come to Flint and play, and I would love to see you in 2021.

Be well,


Chris Heidenreich, D.M.

Associate Professor of Music

Coordinator and Conductor, Tuba Christmas
