Each spring the Madison Youth Choirs travel throughout Dane County to perform for more than 4,000 students through its annual Spring Outreach Tours. We would love for your school to be one of those to host a performance this year!
The tour dates below are broken down by choir and preferred audience grade level:
Wednesday, April 24: Cantabile and Ragazzi
Cantabile is our choir for 9th-12th grade women and Ragazzi is our choir for 9th-12th grade men. These choirs perform separately and together. Openings are limited.
Thursday, April 25: Cantilena
Cantilena is our choir for 9th-12th grade women. Best audience would be elementary or a smaller middle school audience (i.e., all kids that take music or all kids in choir, etc.).
Monday, April 29: Choraliers
Choraliers is our beginning choir for 2nd-4th grade girls. Best audience would be K-2.
Tuesday, April 30: Con Gioia
Con Gioia is our choir for 5th-7th grade girls. Best audience would be K-5.
Tuesday, April 30: Purcell and Holst
Purcell is our beginning boychoir for 2nd-5th grade boys. Holst is our choir for 6th-9th grade boys. These choirs perform both separately and together. Since they have a wide range of ages, their best audiences would be K-5 OR a smaller middle school audience (i.e. all kids that take music or all kids in choir, etc.).
Thursday, May 2: Britten
Britten is our choir for 5th-8th grade boys. Best audience would be K-5 or a smaller middle school audience (i.e. all kids that take music or all kids in choir, etc.).

Capriccio is our choir for 7th-9th grade girls. Best audience would be K-5.
MYC Spring Outreach Tour performances are provided at no cost to the host school although we will gladly accept contributions to help defray transportation costs. The host school simply provides a performance venue (with audience!), piano (acoustic, if possible), choral risers (if available), music stand, and a microphone if the venue requires it.
Performances are typically 25-30 minutes in length and can be scheduled at one of four approximate times (these can be adjusted slightly to fit individual school schedules): 9:30am, 10:30am, 1:00pm, or 2:00pm. Please keep in mind that we will need time to warm-up prior to each performance which means we will arrive approximately 20-30 minutes earlier.
Please let us know if you are interested in hosting a performance by replying with your preferred date and time. We will do our best to accommodate your request although we are sometimes restricted by travel times.
Thank you! We look forward to hearing from you!
