He was one of hundreds of tuba players who came to the Kennedy Center to play in the concert, which originated in 1974 as a tribute to the late artist/teacher William J. Bell, who was born on Christmas Day in 1902. Participants were asked to wear bright colors. They rehearsed for two hours before performing on the Millennium Stage at 6 p.m. (Barbara L.
