Have an old cell phone and don't know what to do with it?

All working models of cell phones will be accepted. Batteries must be included but other accessories and chargers are not needed.

Phones can be dropped off in the Engineering Dean's Office in Auburn Science and Engineering Center, Room 201, or in the Women in Engineering Program Office in Schrank Hall North, Room 360.

Tuba Christmas Dec. 20

TubaChristmas, an Akron holiday tradition now in its 24th year, is returning to the Akron Civic Theatre on Saturday, December 20, for performances at 12:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Both performances are free and open to the public as a holiday gift to the community from the Akron Civic Theatre and The University of Akron School of Music. Musicians pay a $5 registration fee to participate. Low brass musicians who want to play can register on the day of the performances at the Akron Civic Theatre between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. and should plan to rehearse from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Tucker Jolly, founder of Akron’s Tuba Christmas and a professor of music at UA, will conduct. Robert Jorgensen, professor of music and director of bands at UA, will guest conduct. Akron Beacon Journal columnist David Giffels will be the guest soloist for the 12:00 p.m. performance and WAKR-AM radio host Ray Horner will be the guest soloist for the 2:30 p.m. performance.

Tucker Jolly joined The University of Akron’s music faculty in 1980 and began Akron’s own version of TubaChristmas in December of that same year. The first performance was held outside on the Cascade Plaza with 55 musicians. Quickly attracting hundreds of musicians and becoming a popular family tradition, the event moved indoors to Quaker Square for the next three performances, spent the fifth year in the lobby of E. J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall and expanded to fill the Akron Civic Theatre in 1985.

Last year’s performances were the largest yet in Akron and among the largest in the country, with full-capacity audiences hearing nearly 600 musicians who crowded the Civic stage and spilled into the orchestra pit and the front rows of the theatre.
