In celebration of the holiday season, the event will be broadcast live by WKMG Local 6, and will feature all four orchestras of the FSYO.
"It's a highlight of our year to partner with WKMG and have our student musicians provide live music in the annual holiday concert at Lake Eola," said FSYO President Stephen Schenck.

Gifts they would not normally receive."
