Chicago has many great holiday traditions. All along the Lakefront, families spend hours enjoying the festivities. On Saturday, December 21, the Palmer House Hilton is hosting the 25th Annual TubaChristmas spectacular.
The Grand and State Ballroom will be transformed into a winter wonderland with 400 tuba players. Starting at 1 pm, guests can enjoy the musical performance of the season.
This year, the Palmer House partners with the Greater Chicago Food Depository to give guests the opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of the holiday season while donating to a good cause. Holiday revelers to the hotel can donate a non-perishable item to experience the can’t-miss musical performances.
The annual event, orchestrated in honor of music professor and creator Harvey Phillips, sits musicians of all ages and skill levels side-by-side to play cherished Christmas tunes from throughout the ages. As the culmination to the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s “1 City, 1 Food Drive,” campaign, guests to the TubaChristmas event this year are asked to donate to the city-wide food drive that started at Thanksgiving in hopes of meeting a 400 pound weigh-in goal.
“We are honored to welcome the Greater Chicago Food Depository as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of TubaChristmas,” says General Manager Dean Lane. “TubaChristmas is one of the most beloved events at the Palmer House and we look forward to celebrating the annual event in conjunction with Greater Chicago Food Depository to help those in need this holiday season.”
The TubaChristmas event begins at 1 p.m. on December 21st and is free to attend with the donation of a non-perishable food item. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
