The Young Catholic Musicians perform two concerts during the year. The Christmas concert, including a weekend tour in January, is followed by a spring concert featuring popular and patriotic music performed in May. The young people also perform this concert during a nine-day tour the second week of June. The group has performed in places like New York City, Washington, D.C., Toronto, Orlando, Denver, and New Orleans.

The Young Catholic Musicians learn quality liturgical music, arranged for full orchestra and choir. Once each month, the young people lead the music for Mass at various churches. The choir gives strong vocal support to the congregation during Mass, encouraging full and active participation, while the orchestra enhances and energizes the sung prayer.

Tickets for the Christmas concert are $10.00 for reserved seating and $5.00 each for general admission seating. More information can be found at archstl.org/musicians.
