Holiday Magic: A Dickens Christmas

After their Twin Lakes concert and their contribution to the launch of the Alamance Achieves initiative, the Young Musicians will become contributors to the Burlington Recreation and Parks Christmas and Holiday festival in downtown Burlington. On December 9th, the YMA students will be caroling in front of the Company Shops Market on Front Street to contribute to the big Recreation and Parks celebration!! Starting at 6:00 pm and singing until 7:00, the YMA will do its part to herald in the Christmas season in Burlington. While they won’t be able to play their violins because of the cold, they will enthusiastically herald the coming of Christmas and the holidays with a variety of traditional and cultural songs, characterized by Joy and Excitement!!

Command Performance: The YMA at Alamance Achieves

The organizers of the Impact Alamance community initiative, Alamance Achieves, were present at the ribbon-cutting in North Park. Alamance Achieves is focused on strengthening and coordinating Alamance County organizations’ services for children. When they witnessed the performance of the Young Musicians at North Park, the Impact Alamance leadership invited YMA to perform one of their songs at the Launch of Alamance Achieves on November 29. The song the YMA students sing, UJIMA, celebrates and urges the ideas of working together, helping each other, solving problems, responsibility, and building community:

Oh, let us work together.
Oh, let us help each other.
Ujima: let us work together
To make better our community.
We can solve our problems
With collective work and responsibility.

Which fits right in with the entire mission of Alamance Achieves! We are all very much looking forward to this opportunity to contribute to this launch!!

Young Musicians of Alamance Concert at Twin Lakes

Fresh from a triumph at the ribbon-cutting for the permanent shelter at North Park, the Young Musicians of Alamance are giving a concert at Twin Lakes Retirement Community on November 12. The concert will be at 2:00 pm in the Twin Lakes May-Foley Chapel.  All of the students will be performing both instrumental and choral numbers.

YMA numbers have doubled since last June and we now are serving students from four schools! All 15 of our last year’s students from Eastlawn have returned and brought 3 first graders with them. Two are the excited sisters of returning students, who have been watching their older siblings from the sidelines as kindergartners. Now they are full-fledged Young Musicians, grinning from ear to ear! We also have 10 students from North Graham – up from the 3 we had last Spring. And now we have eight students from Andrews and Newlin Schools.

Not only will our students be performing, but their talented Teaching Artists will also be holding forth! Mr. Jerry Davis, our new Program Director, will be blowing his horn! And Ms. Camille Jones, our new general music teacher, will be thrilling us with her incredible voice.
