Each spring MYC travels throughout Dane County to perform for more than 4,000 students through its annual Spring Outreach Tours. We would love for your school to be one of those to host a performance this year!
The tour dates below are broken down by preferred audience grade level:
Wednesday, April 26: Cantabile and Ragazzi
Cantabile is our choir for 9th-12th grade women and Ragazzi is our choir for 9th-12th grade men. These choirs perform separately and together. Openings are limited.
Thursday, April 27: Cantilena
Cantilena is our choir for 9th-12th grade women. Best audience would be elementary or a smaller middle school audience (i.e., all kids that take music or all kids in choir, etc.).
Tuesday, May 2: Con Gioia
Two separate tours will be available on this day. Con Gioia is our choir for 5th-8th grade girls. Best audience would be K-5.
Tuesday, May 2: Holst and Purcell
Holst is our choir for boys in grades 6-9; Purcell is our beginning boychoir for boys in grades 2-5. These choirs perform both separately and together. Since they have a wide range of ages, their best audiences would be K-5 OR a smaller middle school audience (i.e., all kids that take music or all kids in choir, etc…).
Thursday, May 4: Britten
Britten is our choir for 5th-8th grade boys. Best audience would be K-5. It might also be possible to visit a smaller middle school audience (i.e., all kids that take music or all kids in choir, etc.).
Friday, May 5: Capriccio
Capriccio is our choir for 7th-9th grade girls. Best audience would be K-5.
Performances are typically 20-25 minutes in length and can be scheduled at one of four approximate times (these can be adjusted slightly to fit individual school schedules): 9:30am, 10:30am, 1:00pm, or 2:00pm. All we ask from our 9:30am host school is a location to do our morning warm-up.
MYC Spring Outreach Tour performances are provided at no cost to the host school. However, we will gladly accept contributions to help defray transportation costs. The host school simply provides a performing venue (with audience), piano (acoustic, if possible), choral risers (if available), music stand, and a microphone if the venue requires.
Please let us know if you are interested in hosting a performance by replying with your preferred date and time. We will do our best to accommodate your request although we are sometimes restricted by travel times.
Thank you! We look forward to hearing from you!
