For the first time, TYO, TYS, and Sinfonia musicians have the opportunity to participate in the Holiday Ensembles Project, and perform in small ensembles throughout the community.

Many PA musicians enthusiastically signed up to participate in this project.  Rehearsals will begin the last week of November and currently, almost every weekend in December is fully scheduled with performances. The ensembles will perform outreach events for the Raleigh Boys and Girls Club, Jack and Jill, and Marbles Kids Museum, lift spirits in nursing homes and hospice care, and play as a thank you to business sponsors.

In addition, Jazz musicians are also spreading holiday cheer with two performances for seniors. TYJO will play a Holiday Concert at The Forest at Duke on December 16 and TYJE will play at Carol Woods on December 21.

Philharmonic Association musicians will surely bring joy to a great many people this holiday season.
