Cantabile and Ragazzi 
Important Reminders
Previous reminders below (note Sunday's times, thinking ahead about next week outreach tours, senior information due). 

Also: Is anyone available to usher at the Handel Aria competition fundraiser next week? This is a great way to see the performance for free (it'll be great!) and help out. 

It's Wednesday, April 26 (Arrive at 7pm; performance at 7:30pm). Details about the event below. If you are interested, please email Orange Schroeder directly.

On Wednesday, April 26 at 7:30 John Barker will present “Handel and Other Friends” at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1021 Spaight Street.  Local musicians including the Madison Savoyards, the Pro Arte Quartet and the Mosaic Chamber Players will perform. Students from the University of Wisconsin Opera Program will sing a pair of Handel duets, and the seven national finalists in the 2017 Handel Aria Competition will be announced.  Contributions will support the Competition, which takes place in Mills Hall on Friday, June 9. Tickets to the April 26 event are $25 general admission, and $40 for special donor seating. They are available in advance at Orange Tree Imports, 1721 Monroe Street, and will also be sold at the door.
Hope you had a refreshing couple of weeks off. Looking forward to seeing everyone this Sunday and hearing the results of your practice on-your-own time...

Remember: I need to know if you cannot be with us on the spring outreach tours on April 26. So far I've only heard from one singer (which is great), but I'm thinking there might be a few more singers with conflicts.

And a reminder to seniors that I need your info for the program ASAP. 

I've left the rest of the information below as a reference. 

See you Sunday!

Our senior class
We'd like to honor you in our spring concert program. Please send me your name, plans for next year (if you know them--don't stress!), and a favorite MYC memory before our next rehearsal. I've only gotten a couple of these, so send the info on ASAP, please.
