If you need to report an absence or late arrival, please complete the on-line absence form linked in the header section above. As a safety measure, if your singer is not checked in at rehearsal and we have not heard they will be absent, we will call you to verify the absence. The best way to reach us during rehearsals is via the MYC cell phone: 608-770-7464.

Please keep reading for all the details you need to know!
Looking Ahead to Our December 8/9 Concerts
On Saturday, December 8 and Sunday, December 9, our singers will be presenting our winter concert series Resilience, featuring Tony Memmel, at the Middleton Performing Arts Center.

Saturday, December 8 | 7PM | Purcell, Britten, Holst, and Ragazzi
Sunday, December 9 | 4PM | Choraliers, Con Gioia, Capriccio, Cantilena, Cantabile

We will be publishing reminders about dress rehearsals, tickets, volunteers, etc. next week. Please be looking ahead in your singer's calendar for dress rehearsal and concert details, especially as we move toward December and keeping in mind this is a new concert venue for many families.

Concert Wardrobe Reminder
By now everyone should have been fitted for their concert wardrobe. Please double-check that all your pieces fit and contact us immediately if there are issues so we have time to correct in the next two weeks. Thank you!
Poinsettias Still Available!
We have plants available in various quantities across most sizes and colors and will continue to sell until our stock is sold out.  

The easiest way to place your order is via the electronic ordering forms. (Paper forms are also available.) Again, plants are available until our stock is sold out! (You can see current availability on the electronic ordering forms.)

Consider contacting your church, your office, your neighbors, favorite restaurant, hotel, hair salon, etc. Ordering is easy! Families are credited $5/plant sold toward their fundraising contribution goal. 

Please note: orders need to be received by the MYC office at least two business days before your desired delivery or pick up date so Felly's has time to prepare your order.

Questions? Please ask!
Mid-Season Auditions
Do you know a student interested in joining Madison Youth Choirs for our second semester? Please direct them to our "Join a Choir" page on our website where they can learn about our mid-season audition opportunities in November and January.

Introductory Choir Registration for Next Semester
Registration for our winter/spring sessions of introductory choir is now open on our website. We will be offering classes on Sunday afternoon and Tuesday evening at Westgate as well as Saturday mornings at Lake Edge Lutheran Church. Introductory choir is the first step for students ages 7-10 who are interested in participating with MYC. Thank you for sharing with your friends and neighbors who might be interested!
December orders are due November 26. This will be the final opportunity to order prior to the holidays and our mid-season break.

Discount Coupons for A Madison Symphony Christmas
Purcell | Britten | Holst MSO | Cantilena | Ragazzi | Cantabile
Coupons are available at the Rehearsal Table or the MYC office. One coupon may be used for multiple ticket purchases which means just one coupon is needed per family. As in past years, coupons may only be used in person at the Overture Center Box Office located at 211 State Street.
Text Alerts
Text alerts are a handy way for you to receive short messages from us related to your singer's rehearsal schedule. We include text alerts in the collection of ways we communicate with you if there is a cancellation or rehearsal time change due to weather or other unavoidable circumstance. We use Remind.com and signing up is voluntary. 

To opt in for these handy text alerts, please text the code assigned to your singer's ensemble listed below (e.g., "@mycch" for Choraliers) to the number 81010:
Choraliers @mycch
Con Gioia @myccg
Capriccio @myccp
Cantilena @myccl
Cantabile @myccb
Purcell: @mycpc
Britten: @mycbr
Holst: @mychl
Holst MSO @mycmso
Ragazzi: @mycrz

Please note: if you signed up last year, you will need to sign up again this year as ensembles have changed for most singers and we empty each ensemble at the start of the year to ensure no one is receiving the wrong information.
Happy Thanksgiving!
  • The MYC office will be closed Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week.
  • We are grateful for the many ways your family contributes to the MYC community and wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving with family and friends.
  • We'll look forward to seeing everyone at regular rehearsals this Sunday, November 25, and Monday, November 26!
