Celebrating the Holidays with Music

The holidays are a wonderful time to reflect and create new goals and dreams as we prepare for a new year.

Listen to Music

It’s also a time to listen to great holiday music!  Check out our Holiday Playlist on Spotify for some of our favorite family-friendly tunes!

Watch Student Performers

You can also watch past holiday performances by our students (recorded pre-pandemic) and check out some pics of them performing at the historic Chrysler Building in December 2019.

From our COmmunity

Some of our staff share what the holidays mean to them.


Sharisse Brannon, ETM Human Resources Associate

“To me, it means time with family and friends. It’s a festive time of the year. It’s also my birthday month. I love having a birthday so close to the holidays. It’s the one time of the year everyone from all aspects of my life is in one room together.”






Naomi Fernandez, ETM Instructional Supervisor

“Christmas is quite nostalgic for me. Growing up in Germany (ages 5 – 11), Christmas was a magical time of year that included holiday markets, parades, hot chocolate, holiday parties and best of all, great music that made everything and everyone seem jolly!”
