The 40th annual Tuba Christmas was held at the state Capitol on Monday.
It is part of a worldwide event that brings tuba and euphonium players together and different venues to perform.
The event started in 1974 after a music student wanted to pay tribute to his teacher and mentor, tuba great William J Bell. Bell was born on Christmas day.
The event has grown to many different areas since then.
