For more than 70 years, the first performance of the school year has been the Winter Musicales; coming just before the holidays, it has become one of the children’s favorite events. The Winter Musicales is held on the first Sunday in December at Queens College in Flushing, NYC. It features public student performances and the children are encouraged to invite friends and family.
The children do not have to audition for this family friendly concert, which is open for all instruments, including voice.
