TubaChristmas was conceived by Harvey Phillips in 1974 as a tribute to William J. Bell. Bell was the premier tuba player in America in the first half of the twentieth century. He performed with John Phillip Sousa, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and the NBC Symphony Orchestra. For more information about TubaChristmas, see www.tubachristmas.com.
