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.

MYAC's 2019-20 season theme, "Music Unites Us," emphasizes the universal language of music shared around the world as a unifying force for good. Student performances during this season will tie into this theme.

MYAC's classical, jazz and choral programs serve students from grade school beginners to advanced pre-collegiate performers. Families interested in participating in the 2020-21 season can visit mya.org for audition information.
