Hello, MYC singers and families!
We are extending a special invitation to all Capriccio, Cantilena, Cantabile, Britten and Holst treble singers. We are looking for singers from these ensembles to participate in a great project with our good friends at Opera for the Young
. This amazing organization presents shortened versions of classic operas (with the stories given a modern "twist").
Opera for the Young sends teaching materials and a tutorial CD to schools prior to their performances each year. We have been asked to record the choruses in English and Spanish for the tutorial CD for next season's tour of Super Storm, an original work composed by our good friend Scott Gendel. We are looking for a group of singers who can commit to three rehearsals and the recording day. Here are the details:
Rehearsals at Westgate Studios (Studio 4)
Thursday, May 3, 4:45-6:00pm
Thursday, May 10, 4:45-6:000pm
Thursday, May 17, 4:45-6:000pm
Recording Date (First United Methodist Church)
Sunday, May 20, 12:00PM - 2:15PM
Please RSVP to Lisa Kjentvet
with your singer's name and choir if you are available for all rehearsals and the recording date. We will build the roster based on the needs of Opera for the Young. Once you volunteer we assume you have checked the dates and can commit to 100% participation. Thank you to those singers that have already expressed interest. Lisa will confirm each participant once the list is final--thank you for your patience!
