About this Campaign
The Tuba – the lowest sounding instrument in the band and orchestra, the foundation to the musical ensemble. It is also the biggest and most expensive instrument in the band. We are very proud of our Lincoln Public School Bands and as our programs continue to grow, there is a real need for MORE tubas. Being such a large instrument, the cost of a new tuba is quite expensive.
This Fund A Need request is to help replace older tubas with new ones at some of our high schools and middle schools, and to provide “baby” tubas at some of our elementary schools in order to start the next generation of tuba players.
Why is the tuba so cool? They play more than oom – pahs, they can also play melodies in their own unique and fun way. During the holiday season, there are numerous Tuba Christmas’s around the country. VIDEO LINK Each year, there is a Tuba Christmas in the Rotunda of the Nebraska State Capital. We hope we can continue to have future tuba players involved, so please consider helping out with this “Tubas for Christmas” request.
