The Albuquerque Youth Symphony has been selling luminarias to support high-quality music education for young musicians in our community for 40 years. This year, COVID-19 prevents us from gathering in large groups of students and volunteers to produce fully-assembled luminarias for our customers.

We will be selling our classic, double-folded luminaria bags prepared by our students, and candles in kits of 1dz(12 folded bags and candles) to assemble your own luminarias. There will be a big pile of sand in our parking lot. Make sure to bring a bucket and extra pair of hands during pick-up day. AYSP staff and volunteers will not be able to assist with scooping sand.

Let's shine the light of hope and joy throughout our community!

Our no contact, drive-through pick-up date is Friday, December 18, 2020 from 11am - 5pm. Stop by our facility on 4407 Menaul Blvd. NE, 87110 during the time listed to pick up your luminaria kits and sand.


One $8 kit includes:

- 1 dozen (12) folded luminaria bags

- 1 dozen (12) candles

- We will have sand on site. Make sure to bring a bucket and an extra pair of hands to help you scoop your sand on pick-up day.





We rely on donations from generous individuals and businesses like you to provide symphonic performance experiences to Albuquerque’s talented young musicians and access to music education for students in need.
