International Tuba Day — 10 am

International Tuba Day

Today is International Tube Day (celebrated on the first Friday of each year). We do not play the tuba and know little about the instrument’s history (you can learn all about the tube at http://www.tubaday.com) but we did want to show this very cool poster from the early 1960s, so the headline seemed appropriate. For inquiries, email posterconnection@gmail.com.
