Tuba Christmas

I was asked to illustrate a children's book about Tuba Christmas, an event in which tuba players from all over the world come together for a performance in New York City each year at Christmas time.  Without giving away too much of the story, I will say that my illustration needs to include Santa Claus searching for a specific tuba, and I will probably include other traditional elements of Christmas such as elves and reindeer.  I haven't decided yet if I'm going to make just the "hero" illustration for this project (such as the book cover or the climax of the story), or a set of three illustrations that tell three key points of the story.  I think using the visual theme of musical instruments will lend itself well to illustrating the words "quiet" and/or "loud". Can't wait to start creating!
