TubaSummer made its debut in Akron in 2001 to a crowd of 800 with the support of the DownTown Akron Partnership. Following the form of the infamous TubaChristmas performances held at EJ Thomas Hall for the last 42 years, TubaSummer celebrates its
namesake season with tunes that encapsulate the sound of summer with everything from German Polka to patriotic sing-a-longs. A few years after its conception, The University of Akron
School of Music took over sponsorship of the event and has continued the tradition and legacy ever since! Audience members are encouraged to sing along and enjoy being outside, surrounded by low brass music and the sounds of the city!
