DALLAS, TX -- Do you feel it?

There's a buzz in the air. A deep, baritone, harmonious buzz.

The kind only a tuba can crank out, especially when belting out holiday carols!

Today, a group of more than 175 area tuba, sousaphone, euphonium, and baritone players are meeting in Thanksgiving Square in downtown to perform Christmas carols.

And this isn't just a Dallas thing!

Tubachristmas is an international event started by Harvey Phillips in 1974 - 2016 marks the 43rd year!

The event was started as a tribute to his teacher, William J. Bell.

Players gathered in Thanksgiving Square in Dallas with over 20 other performances in Texas alone.
