MYAC's holiday concert embraces different cultures
Midwest Young Artists Conservatory's Jazz, Choral and Orchestra students take the stage at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, at Ravinia's Bennett Gordon Hall to present a free holiday concert event for the whole family.
The concert will showcase a variety of multicultural melodies celebrating Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Christmas.
Students from MYAC's orchestra, jazz and choral programs perform while the audience is invited to join in caroling, complete with a special visit from Santa.
This free concert is a popular annual MYAC event. Parking is free, but arrive early for best general seating. For more information, visit mya.org/events/seasoncalendar.
