Some of you have probably heard a Tuba Christmas performance - they occur in many cities every year around this time. In San Jose, we have an annual San Jose Saxophone Christmas (this year around 225 saxes, plus two sarrusophones and a tubax). For those who aren't aquainted with the phenomenon, imagine 100+ instruments, all tubas (or all saxophones, etc.) playing Christmas carols arranged for the large group.
Why are there no annual ____________ Christmases for other instruments? There may be one for flutes, and its just that nobody's noticed it yet.
As for trumpets, I think there is an obvious problem. Listen
