Zoom Settings and a Few Requests
Thank you for all the ways you supported your singer in providing space for their rehearsal and help with logging in--it was a very smooth first week! Let's do it again this Sunday.

A few requests/reminders for going forward:
Singers, please record your username as your preferred first name (no jokes, please) along with your last name and choir abbreviation. If you're using a family Zoom account, likely you will need to update the screen username (hover your mouse over the three dots in the upper right hand corner of your screen to accomplish this. If you're having difficulty, MYC staff may do this for you when you enter rehearsal). 

Using a virtual background is fine but tinkering with your background during rehearsal is an unnecessary distraction--thanks for not doing this! 

Original Sound Setting 
We have prepared instructions (see red box below) to help singers adjust this setting in Zoom. Thank you for reading these instructions and adjusting this setting before Sunday's rehearsal, if possible. Instructions are also linked on the Virtual MYC Page.

Introductory Choir Begins Oct 18
Our fall session of virtual introductory choir for students ages 7-10 begins Sunday, October 18. Registration is open on our Join a Choir page. Thanks for passing along to interested friends and family members!
