Students and ensembles of all ages at the Eastman Community Music School (ECMS) will be showcased during the School’s annual celebration of the winter season on Saturday, Dec. 17.
A daylong music extravaganza, Winterfest features concurrent performances in several venues across the Eastman School of Music campus. Performers range in age from elementary school to adults, with a wide array of music styles and ensemble types presenting programs that include holiday favorites.
