Bring your friends, your family and your lawn chairs and enjoy a summer afternoon in the city park for the Ariel’s Summer Tuba-Time. Tuba and euphonium players of all ages will gather on July 4 near the bandstand in the Gallipolis City Park on Sunday, July 3 at 4:30 pm for a nostalgic afternoon of music sure to delight one and all. Visitors are welcome to attend the 1:00pm rehearsal at the Ariel as well.

TubaChristmas has been such a popular December event for the past 42 years, the national Harvey Phillips Foundation has expanded the concerts to the summer months and low brass groups all over the country will gather to play such favorites as Down by the Riverside, You’re a Grand Old Flag, In the Good Old Summertime, When the Saints Go Marching In and many, many more. This will be Gallipolis’ first such Summer Tuba-Time event.

Tuba-Time ensembles attract players from 8 to 80. The warm, rich, organ-like sound of the tuba-euphonium choir has won over the ears and hearts of every audience.

This July 3 event is free and open to the public and is part of the River Recreation Festival, Gallipolis’ own Independence Day celebration that occurs in the city park every year.
