A Madison Symphony Christmas
Performance Weekend | December 14-15, 2019
Happy MSO Weekend, Everyone!
Many thanks for everyone's support of this fabulous collaborative experience for our singers. We couldn't be more proud of how brilliantly they are representing MYC and how fully they are embracing this experience, working hard to elevate their music-making with each performance. (Singing with an orchestra is a thrill and a challenge!)

Schedule for Tonight and Tomorrow
Saturday, December 14:
7:30PM      Call time for ALL

**If you are in the audience, please WAIT for Intermission to leave the hall to pick up your singer. It's very helpful if your Con Gioia/Capriccio singer knows if you are in the audience so they understand to wait in the rehearsal room until Intermission which is approximately 25 minutes after the published pick up time. Thank you for reminding them at drop off if you will be picking them up at Intermission (because you're in the audience) or at the regular pick up time.

The full schedule and other important reminders can be found in your (previously shared and distributed) MSO Rehearsal and Concert Primer.

Con Gioia and Capriccio MSO singers do NOT need to bring their music.

Fancy Duds Reminder: 
Con Gioia, Capriccio, Cantilena, and Cantabile: black MYC concert dress, black hosiery, flat, black dress shoes. Please wear black undergarments, if possible, and double-check that undergarment straps are not visible. Thank you!

Ragazzi: spiffy tuxedo with bow tie, black dress shirt, black shoes, black socks.

All: Please do not wear any excessive jewelry (no visible necklaces, large earrings, etc.), nor perfumes/scents.

High School ensembles: Festive hats are optional for carol sing-along!

Parking Downtown
Please plan ahead to make sure you have time to find parking as downtown will be busy all weekend. Parking ramps near Overture will be charging their flat "Event Parking" fee of $8 upon entry. Cash or credit cards are accepted.

Thank you, again, for not blocking traffic on N Henry Street during pick up and drop off. Please pull your car to a temporary parking spot along the curb or circle the block until there's a space. Traffic needs to be able to move in both directions as this is a main corridor for emergency vehicles.

Text Alerts
Please sign up if you haven't already done so! We've used this each evening to update families on our pick up times. To sign up for these handy alerts, please text the code assigned to your singer's ensemble (e.g., "@myccg" for Con Gioia) to the number 81010:

Con Gioia: @myccg
Capriccio MSO: @mycms
Cantilena: @myccl
Cantabile: @myccb
Ragazzi: @mycrz

Thank you, parents, (grandparents!, etc.), for supporting your singer's participation in this extraordinary performance opportunity. Everyone is doing a fabulous job!
