Many thanks to Boyd Krueger, who took many of the photos in this gallery and elsewhere on the site.


Here are a few videos from the 2012 concert. You can find all videos from that show at the TubaChristmasLA YouTube channel.

"Jingle Bells" performed by the big choir.

The Tubadours perform a Hanukah medley arranged by Scott's father, Robert Wilkinson, inspired by a choral arrangement by Scott's wife, Joanna Cazden.

Scott introduces all the different types of tubas played at TubaChristmas.

The Hollywood Tuba 12 (12-piece ensemble of top LA professional tubists) performs "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." Man, can they swing!

Steve Klein leads the big choir in "Mo'oz Tzur," aka "Rock of Ages," a Hanukah favorite.

Scott Wilkinson recognizes some of the players—the youngest, oldest, farthest traveled, best decorated, etc. Some interesting stories here!

The big choir plays "Here Comes Santa Claus," and who should show up but the jolly elf himself! After some chit-chat, Santa conducts "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."

The concert ends with "Silent Night," dedicated to TubaChristmas founder Harvey Phillips and, in 2012, the victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting, which happened two days before this concert.
