ILWACO, Wash. — Enjoy rich sounds of the season at the annual Tuba Christmas concert, 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum.

The show features the Astoria Tuba Quartet performing a variety of seasonal songs, jazz arrangements and a polka or two at this family-friendly event.

The tuba’s versatility allows the quartet to perform traditional Christmas selections like “Sleigh Ride,” jazz selections by noted arrangers Lenny Niehaus and Bill Holman, the much-loved Evergreen Polka and ATQ’s version of the “Dance of the Reed Flutes” (from the “Nutcracker Suite”).

The concert, sponsored by the Ilwaco Merchants Association, is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. The museum is at 115 S.E. Lake St.
