Weekly Notes From Madison Youth Choirs
Thursday, April 9, 2020
An Update
When we suspended rehearsals on March 12, we were all hopeful that by mid to late April the directive to maintain physical distancing would be withdrawn, or amended, to somehow allow us to be together again at MYC this spring. Sadly, we know now that it won't be possible for us to rehearse again this April, nor present our concerts at the Capitol Theater on May 2 and 3. 

Like all of you, we are consuming the daily dose of information hoping to notice a trend that might indicate things are on their way back to normal. As soon as that happens we will be ready to see all of you. At whatever point we're allowed to gather--if it's May, June, July, or August--we will have a plan to make that happen! 

Weekly Notes will continue each Thursday and we'll have more to share next week about how we're planning for next season.

In the mean time...

  • Thank you to everyone who is sharing what MYC means to them! The It's MYChoir Campaign continues through April so it's not too late to send an email or even start a Facebook fundraiser. Everything you need is in the Family Guide on our website
  • If you have been collecting donations at home and are ready to turn them in, you may send the donations to our office address: 10 W Mifflin, Suite 400, Madison, WI 53703. Please complete a donor record for each donation by submitting the electronic "donation by check" form so we may properly receipt your donors. 
  • Please say thank you to your donors! MYC will also be sending a thank you but hearing from you will be most meaningful.
MYC Board Welcomes Student Members
Will Kelly, (Ragazzi); Ellie Overkamp (Cantabile); and Miles Friedlander (Cantabile) will be welcomed as MYC's first student board members at our April 16th meeting! We are looking forward to the contributions of insight and unique perspective each of these long-time MYC singers (and all-around wonderful human beings!) will bring to our MYC board of directors.

We had a wonderful group of applications to consider and are looking forward to the opportunities ahead to harness all the enthusiasm that was expressed through this process. Thanks to everyone who applied (and please check your inbox!).
Introductory Choir Summer Registration
At this time we are still taking registrations for our June and July sessions of introductory choir. Our one-week sessions will meet Monday through Friday from 9am to noon and include time outside and a snack! All sessions will be held at Christ Presbyterian Church. Please direct interested friends and family to our "Join a Choir" page on our website for more information.
Facebook Live Will Return on April 19
We are off this Sunday for Easter and Passover but will return the following Sunday and look forward to seeing you then. Past videos are posted on our Facebook page and can be enjoyed over and over and over again! 

We hope you are all staying well and continuing to find ways to encourage and support one another at home and at work, in the living room and in the kitchen. We miss you and look forward to being together again soon. Have a great week!
