The Austin Symphony is excited to continue its new program this holiday season that will bring free music to all Austinites. Christmas in the Community is a series of ten concerts held throughout the city of Austin featuring different ensembles of the orchestra playing familiar holiday music. The program kicks off on December 4th with woodwinds at the Macy’s at Lakeline Mall. All ten dates, times, and locations are listed below.

Christmas in the Community is proudly sponsored by Macy’s.

Christmas in the Community replaces our previous holiday tradition, The Christmas Sing-Along. The new ten concert series enables the Symphony to reach a broader audience. The one night only performance limited attendance to just 3,000 people, while the new program, with more diverse locations and times, is able to reach far more.
