One Week from Sunday We Begin!
Very soon we will all be back in the rhythm of weekly MYC rehearsals and we can hardly wait. Our first rehearsals of the 2020-21 season begin on Sunday, October 4 and families who have completed their registration by September 30, can expect to receive the Zoom meeting link along with tips for preparing for our first rehearsal by the end of next week.

As a reminder, you can see the weekly schedule for your singer's ensemble by visiting the Calendars link under the Members tab (also linked in the header section above).

On the Fence about MYC this Fall?
Talk to us! We can answer your questions and help describe what virtual choir will feel like in a few weeks. One thing we know: being together virtually will be better than not being together at all and we plan to make the most of our time together. It won't feel like school and we hope it's the time in your week you most look forward to. That's our goal. 

One question is popping up a lot in our email and has been added to the FAQ:
Q: If I don't join this fall can I come back when we're meeting in person?
A: The answer, of course, is yes. BUT, since we don't know when we will be able to be back together in person, we really encourage you to not postpone or base your participation on whether we're meeting virtually or in person. Just like in a traditional season, your experience is always enhanced by participating for the full year and we don't want anyone to miss out on this fall session "because it's virtual." Come and be part of your singing community--your voice is important!

Introductory Choir Registration Opening Soon
Our fall session of virtual introductory choir for students ages 7-10 will be offered starting Sunday, October 18, for eight weeks. Registration is opening soon and will be open until the session fills. Our Join a Choir page will have all the details--coming soon!

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.
