Thursday, September 10, 2020
Registration Reminder
We're looking forward to the start of our virtual fall session on Sunday, October 4! Please let us know you are planning to participate by submitting your registration before September 30. We are happy to resend your invitation email with enrollment instructions if you're not finding it in your inbox (sent August 28). Just let us know!

Do You Know Someone Interested in Joining (or Rejoining) MYC?
We are inviting students in grades five and above interested in joining (or rejoining) MYC this fall to meet with us for a brief chat and a little singing on Sunday, September 20. Our goal in these short virtual meetings is to get to know each student a bit, hear their voice, and answer any questions they might have about MYC. If you know someone interested in joining MYC this fall, please share this opportunity with them and direct them to our Join a Choir page where they can make a reservation to meet with us. A silver lining in our virtual fall plan is we're not constrained by geography--this opportunity is open to any student (grade 5-12), regardless of where they live. Thank you for sharing widely!

Virtual Choir Project / Singers Who are 18 years old
SoulPancake & Participant Media are creating a powerful music video to inspire people to vote through the power of song! They will be creating a virtual choir comprised specifically of 18 year olds who are registered (or will be registering) & planning to vote for the first time in the November 2020 election.  

Deadline to apply for this opportunity is TODAY, September 10, 2020

Please direct questions to Fernando Davila at fernando@soulpancake.com

Madison Opera High School Apprentice Program
Madison Opera’s High School Apprentice Program offers high school juniors and seniors the unique opportunity to explore the world of professional opera and receive a thorough introduction to the production process and careers in the performing arts.  Many former apprentices have gone on to sing in the Madison Opera Chorus and MYC has a long history of participation with this amazing program.

Deadline to apply is September 30. 

Please visit Madison Opera for everything you need to know and to complete the application.

Carrie Enstad and Marie McManama, our Con Gioia conductors, send this special greeting to everyone and specifically to Con Gioia:

Hello Con Gioia, it’s Carrie and Marie!  We miss you, and we are ready to get BACK TOGETHER for a new season!  No, we won’t be gathering in person, at least not yet.  But we can promise that our time together will be different than your school Zoom meetings!  We will sing and make music, we will explore big ideas, ask questions of one another and of the music, and enjoy being together.  You know, the MYC way that we know and love!  We can’t wait to see YOU, and to see what is in store for us this season.  You won’t want to miss it.  So come and join us!
