Prism Concert 2019 Information

Dear Friends and Family of the CA Music Department,

This year’s Holiday PRISM Concerts are on Wednesday, December 18 at 6:30 and 8:30 PM .

There are over 250 students performing in this year’s concert and thus, free general admission tickets are required to attend.
During class periods, Academy student musicians will receive two tickets for every ensemble in which they participate, with a family maximum of 8. Student performers whose last name starts with A-L will receive early show tickets. Last names beginning with M-Z will receive late show tickets. This is reversed from last year.
Remaining tickets will be distributed during an open box office hour on Tuesday, December 3rd from 6:00 to 7:00 pm in the Canandaigua Academy Atrium. At this time, up to 4 tickets per person may be acquired or exchanged. Please note, the 6:30 show historically “sells out” quickly.
If tickets remain after the open box office hour, they may be picked up or exchanged at Mobile Music (163 South Main St.) starting at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, December 4 until 3:00 pm on the day of the PRISM concert performances.
We have tried many different approaches to ticket distribution. No method has ever been perfect or felt fair to everyone. Most people want to attend the early show, however that simply is not possible. If you have a unique family situation that absolutely requires special accommodations, please contact a music teacher. We appreciate your understanding.

Tickets to the RPO Holiday Concert at Canandaigua will also be available for purchase at this time. That concert is sponsored by our Canandaigua Rotary and the music selections are chosen by the RPO.

Contact Mr. Greg Kane at if you have further questions.

Thank you and Happy Holidays,
The CA Music Department
