The holiday season is a time of giving and receiving gifts.  Although December’s focus may be on gifts that can be wrapped, the Philharmonic Association believes that music is a wonderful gift to give and to receive.  Our Holiday Ensembles Program aims to bring joy to the community during the holiday season by giving the gift of music to the people in the community in need of such a gift.  They perform at locations like nursing homes, retirement communities, museums, malls, and other locations throughout the Triangle.
