The Historic Palace Theatre is presenting a very special holiday performance for this December’s First Fridays event. They are bringing one of the most successful performing collegiate ensembles in history to the stage of the Palace Theatre to perform their “Christmas Tubas” program on Friday, Dec. 5, beginning at 7 p.m. The Tennessee Tech Tuba Ensemble (TTTE) has an enviable record of 25 recording projects, seven Carnegie Hall appearances, two World's Fairs performances, numerous national and international conference engagements, and a performance history in venues like Preservation Hall in New Orleans, the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, and the Kennedy Center in Washington.
It has been said that “the public sometimes views the tuba as simplistic, unsexy — ridiculous even. But in the correct hands, it is as fast and agile as any horn in the brass section. With a 4 octave range — greater than any other horn — the registers in which these tubists excel and their dexterity are truly remarkable.”
Admission to the performance of the “Christmas Tubas” is $12 adults / $6 students. Tickets can be purchased at the Palace Theatre, 72 South Main Street, Crossville or by calling 931-484-6133 or online at www.palacetheatre-crossville.com (click on the “Events Schedule” link on the right side of the page).
