Tell Your Friends About MYC!
Now is the time to let your friends know about either auditioning for a performing choir (grades 5-12) or enrolling in a summer introductory choir session (ages 7-10). All the information they need is on our website under the Join A Choir tab.
Handel Aria Competition
MYC's good friends, Orange and Dean Schroeder, created and sustain an incredible local event: the Handel Aria Competition. From a field of 100 singers, seven performers have been chosen as finalists and will compete on Friday, June 7 (7:30pm) in Mills Hall in the Humanities building on the UW-Madison campus. Judges choose finalists and the audience helps choose the audience favorite!

Free tickets are available to MYC families (2 per family). Requests should be emailed to handelariacompetition@gmail.com by June 5 (midnight) by sending your name and ticket request. Tickets will be held at "will call" at the door. Additional General Admission tickets are $15.
Timeline for 2019-20 Placements and Registration
Singers who have notified us via the intention form that they wish to continue singing with us next year will receive an invitation to return to MYC for our 2019-20 season via email in early June. Tuition and registration forms will be due by mid-July and our season begins again in September! The season calendar will be included when invitations are sent in early June.
Turning in Wardrobe
ALL singers NOT returning next season: Please launder your MYC concert wardrobe and red polo, and return all items clearly labeled with your name to the MYC office. (No need to call ahead--if we're not here, items may be left by the office door.)

Everyone else: please hang on to your current wardrobe until choir placements are made for next season.
Turning in Music
All music should be removed from your singer's binder and returned to the MYC office. (Most has been returned--please double-check to see if your singer still has music.) Please include singer's name and ensemble when turning in music.
Concert Recordings Available from Audio for the Arts
Recordings may be ordered here.
Summer Office Hours
Our summer office hours will include shortened weeks with the office closed on Fridays beginning May 31. (We will be open until noon on Fridays during introductory choir weeks.)

Thank you for continuing to read the Weekly Notes as they arrive in your inbox through the first part of June.
