Christmas In the Community
“Christmas in the Community” is a free community-wide event where brass, string, and woodwind ensembles of the Austin Symphony will canvass the Greater Austin area during the month of December. It is our mission to bring the sounds of the holidays to the community instead of the community coming to us.
By taking the orchestra out of the concert hall and into public spaces, we reach thousands of people and get to introduce ourselves to new audiences.
In addition to the professional musicians of the Austin Symphony, we will also invite select student members of the Austin Youth Orchestra to perform in these ensemble concerts, as an educational component. These students will be part of the various ensembles playing across Austin, performing side-by-side with professional Austin Symphony musicians, gaining invaluable experience along the way
