Summer and Fall 2012 at TYMS

In summer of 2012, over 20 TYMS students and families were treated to Santa Fe Opera tickets for performances of Tosca and The Pearl Fishers, courtesy of the Taos Opera Guild. We are so grateful to the Opera Guild for their continued generosity!

For the first time, TYMS had a presence at the Touch-a-Truck event in September 2012, a Taos-community-wide event. This was an excellent opportunity to promote our program to the youth of Taos. Also in September, the Youth Choir performed for the Kiwanis Club dinner. Although it was early in the year, the group made an excellent impression on this long-standing Taos organization.

And once again, in October of 2012, we held another pancake breakfast at Applebee’s netting close to $1,000. Special thanks to Angela Pacheco for her tireless efforts to coordinate the events, and to the many families who sold tickets, volunteered and ate pancakes!

Another first this year – TYMS participated in the Christmas event at the Taos Youth and Family Center. This was a great opportunity to introduce our program to children and families. Special thanks to Scott Kesson and Angela Pacheco for representing TYMS so well.

The Youth Choir performed at the Lions’ Club annual Christmas event at Old Martina’s Hall in December. It was a packed house, and our beautiful singers made the event even more festive.
