Midwest Young Artists Conservatory proudly presents two free holiday events this December featuring the talents of its choral, jazz, and orchestra students:
- Sunday December 9 at 2 p.m. at DePaul University's newly unveiled elegant and acoustically optimal Holtschneider Performance Center 2330 N. Halsted St in Chicago, MYAC Maestros and Voices Rising choral singers perform with MYAC Concert Orchestra and Jazz Workshop students in “What The World Needs Now Is Love”: a FREE program of inspirational songs promoting peace.
- Sunday December 16 at 2 p.m. and again at 4 p.m. at Bennett Gordon Hall at 201 St. Johns Ave. in Highland Park, IL, the “Magical Musical Holiday Show” will feature MYAC’s Symphony Orchestra, MYAC choral ensemble members, an original dramatic performance, holiday caroling, and a special visit from Santa himself! The Magical Musical Holiday show is FREE. Parking is free.
Founder and Executive Director Allan Dennis says one of his primary goals in life is to bring music to children and families of all ages, interests, and areas. He’s especially thrilled for the MYAC community concerts that share music in a way that “I think every community deserves.”
Voices Rising and VocalPoint Director Stevi Marks says she believes music education fosters connections, builds bridges, and unites people.
“Our students come together from different backgrounds and experiences and their joy for making music is palpable. Music is our platform for teaching tolerance, equality, unity, and life lessons that go beyond the score. What better respite than music to take us beyond the difficulties of our daily world?"
