Maps & Directions


Our yearly Holiday Concert is a wonderful opportunity to hear three of our top performing groups at CYS: our Wind Symphony, the Associate Orchestra, and the Symphony Orchestra. The Associate Orchestra will perform light-classic favorites by Britten, Auber, Saint-Saëns, and Morton Gould. We are delighted to feature Young Artist Competition winner Grace Huh, as she performs Ravel’s virtuosic Tzigane for Violin and Orchestra. As always, the Senior Orchestra will get you into the Holiday spirit with its selection of holiday favorites such as White Christmas, Deck the Halls, Joy to the World, and selections from the perennial favorite, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker.
