Holiday favorites, Santa, and activities in the true spirit of the season make this a wonderful family tradition! Enjoy music from "The Polar Express" and other wintry tunes, sing along with the BPO to some of your favorite carols and join the musical jam with jingle bells.

Dancers from the Royal Academy of Ballet and Verve Dance Studios provide extra cheer! The Amherst Bel Canto Chorus lends their voices to Christmas classics. Santa, Mrs. Claus, and some of their best elves will drop in after the concert for milk and cookies.

Come at 1:30 PM to make cards for military men and women stationed far from home and meet U.S Marines. Bring a new, unwrapped toy to our month-long Toys For Tots drive.

Begin a lifetime of music making and appreciation . . .

“Going to the Jingle Bell Jam concert inspired me to start talking about instruments to my young son and it’s amazing the chain of events it triggered.  We started looking for instrument related books, started attending other live music and went to all the BPOKids concerts.  Now I’m looking into music classes because he’s so interested at a young age – he plays “violin” with random objects around the house like a broom and dustpan.”
