Con Gioia's performance with Dr. Bassam Shakhashiri, as part of the grand finale event of the Wisconsin Science Festival, is this Sunday, October 25. Thank you for paying attention to all the details below and supporting your singer's contribution to this unique collaboration!
Our performance is at the Wisconsin Institutes of Discovery (WID) on the UW-Madison campus. Please take a moment now to study the map and consider your parking options (there are many!) so you have a good plan for being on time.
Once inside the WID, please report directly to the H.F. Deluca Forum. (Click for floor plan.)
We have moved the call time 15 minutes earlier to 1:45PM to allow enough time in the venue before the doors open to the public. Thank you for paying attention to this detail and for your flexibility. Con Gioia's performance will be during Dr. Shakhashiri's Science is Fun presentation between 2:30PM and 4:00PM. This event is free and open to the public and Con Gioia members will sit together as part of the audience when not performing.
Immediately following the performance, Con Gioia members will need to go directly to their regular Sunday rehearsal at Westgate Studios. Thank you, parents, for your help in making this happen in the quickest, most efficient way possible.
A celebratory snack will be provided before rehearsal begins at Westgate. As always, if you are concerned about food sensitivity or allergies, please plan to provide a quick snack for your singer.
Regardless of what time rehearsal begins, it will end on time at 5:30pm. Given Con Gioia's upcoming performance with the Madison Symphony Orchestra, each rehearsal opportunity before December 4th is important!
What to Wear
Singers should wear their red MYC polo with jeans, slacks or a modest skirt.
This event is required and we expect each Con Gioia member to be part of this performance unless we have already heard from you regarding your immovable, unavoidable conflict.
We are excited to be contributing to this fantastic festival and look forward to Con Gioia's performance with Dr. Shakhashiri. We know they will represent MYC in the best possible way! Thank you for paying attention to these details and ensuring your singer is where they need to be on October 25.
