Perry Fine Arts concerts are back! Our first concern is everyone’s health, so if COVID-19 numbers, go up we will cancel or postpone. Our facilities are large enough to social distance and masks are recommended but not required.

The annual William Bell Memorial Tuba and Euphonium Day clinic/concert will be held Saturday, Nov. 6 at the First United Methodist Church at 1100 Third St. in Perry.

The William Bell Tuba Day is an afternoon-long celebration of the life of Bill Bell. The primary activity for participants is taking part in a large tuba/euphonium choir with a variety of participants that range in skill from elementary students to professional musicians.

The only requirement to participate is an instrument (tuba/euphonium) and the love of playing. This annual event is held in memory of William Bell, who was nationally known to tubists for his contributions as performer, composer, and teacher.

Those interested in being a part of the ensemble for this event will be registering from12:30-1 p.m. at the church. The event is open to all ages and all should bring their instrument, music stand and registration fee ($10 student/$15 adult, collected that day).

Rehearsal will be at 1:00 to be followed by a clinic/masterclass at 3:00. A public concert will be at 4:00. From 5:30-5:45 a memorial performance will be held at William Bell’s grave site. Following this, performers eat, socialize, and plan next year’s event.

The public concert at 4 p.m. is free and open to all and the facility is handicapped accessible.

To be in the ensemble, please RSVP or address questions to Chad Thompson, 4420 73rd Pl, Urbandale, IA 5032, via telephone at 515-999-0268, or via e-mail to mail@chadthompson.me.
