What's Included?

Your ticket will gain you admission to:

  • the silent auction: from interesting art to enticing opportunities, there's sure to be something here that will capture your interest!
  • the beautiful Chesapeake Ballroom in which you will experience the grand Gala Concert with performances by SMYOC's four choirs and two orchestras, plus Kurt Nikkonen and Sharin Apostolou performing with our Youth Orchestra!

Your ticket also includes a warming meal (entrée and dessert), suited to the time of year.


For those of legal age, a cash bar will be serving beer, wine and soft drinks. The bar will be open throughout the event to allow you to indulge and have fun! If you wish to purchase drinks using a credit/debit card, you may use the Holiday Inn's main bar just around the corner from the Ballroom. Drinks are not included in the cost of the ticket.
