9th Annual Advent Concert 2017

The Advent Concert isn't your typical holiday concert. Each year the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is filled with sights, sounds and the spirit of Chirstmas as the band, Behind the Eyes, presents an interactive performance playing a blend of contemporary and classic Christmas favorites with a Trans-Siberian Orchestra feel. This is a family-friendly event celebrating the most important gift during the holiday season: Jesus!

Thanks to the support of generous sponsors, a matinee performance was made available and eight local schools were invited and bussed to the Advent Concert's one-hour show, with no cost to these schools! A total of 1,700 youth came together to enjoy this Christmas celebration and worship the reason for the season.

The YMCA of the Fox Cities and Behind the Eyes would like to recognize all of those who worked behind the scenes to make the concert happen including:

  • YMCA Mission Emphasis Team
  • Lincoln Elementary, Appleton

  • Erik Johnson, Lighting Director
