Founder, New Britain TubaChristmas
Anne C. Marshall lives in New Britain, works in New Britain and loves music. When she found out that TubaChristmas was a fun family event that her grandchildren would enjoy, she saw no reason why they should have to travel outside of New Britain to participate. So, here's to you, friends and family!
Molly Sherman is a New Britain home-schooling mother with a family who is very active in the musical community. Molly sings and she and her husband have hosted numerous recitals for their children on piano, saxophone, voice, and drum. Every year the sounds of Christmas music soar through the air when she hosts her musical holiday party, inviting guests to bring an instrument and join in song.
