Time for some tuba

Music lovers have an opportunity to be a part of a years-long national tradition by heading to Dallas to see Tuba Christmas on Friday.
The event, coordinated in Dallas by Ennis High School assistant band director Steve Shoop, has been the Ennis resident’s baby since 1986. It’s 25 years for Shoop in the driver’s seat this year.

“It makes me fee like — well, it’s a lot of work and planning, however, it gives me an opportunity every year to reconnect with colleagues in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” Shoop said.

Around 200 tuba and euphonium players will be on hand at Thanks-Giving Square, located at 1627 Park Ave. in Dallas at noon Friday for the event, which lasts around an hour and features Christmas titles everyone knows, Shoop said. Some selections visitors can expect will include “Deck the Halls,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Jingle Bells,” “Silent Night,” “Joy to the World” and other holiday standards.
