The December holiday concert series has been full of wonderful music. The amazing musicians have wowed us once again. I am in awe of the musical talents of the following groups. If any of the groups are playing near you, I suggest you check them out.

Three groups (5 O’clock band, 6 O’clock band, and the 7 O’clock band) played for us at a day time concert. Young Sounds of Arizona is comprised of ~ 40 high school-aged students. The students are from schools in the greater Phoenix area.

Very interesting post! It’s always good to get out around your city to explore the local, and visiting, talent. Here in Atlanta there are plenty of venues that have weekly musical activities, although I personally have been too lazy to go out and enjoy them. Your post definitely has me rethinking going out to a jazz concert though because I do love me some jazz!
Jazz in Atlanta would be great to see live.
what a lovely and classy time! always nice to experience holiday music in person
This looks like a great evening. My younger daughter is learning to play the violin and loves to watch others so she can get better. I think I need to look into a concert like this for her.
It is wonderful that she is learning to play the violin. She would have enjoyed the violist.
Cool! I should have checked this out when I was there last!
