We are so very proud of our singers and are looking forward to a full day of celebrating all they have learned and accomplished this fall at our concerts on Sunday. Thank you, parents, for the myriad ways you support your singer's participation in MYC--especially on a busy concert weekend! All the details you need to know are listed below. Thank you for reading carefully.
All singers should have MYC concert wardrobe that fits! Thank you for making sure your singer arrives wearing the appropriate attire on concert day:
Girls: black MYC concert dress, black hosiery (no leggings, please), black flat dressy shoes
Boys: khaki pants, white Oxford, blue blazer, MYC boychoir tie (already tied, please!), black belt, black dressy shoes (no athletic shoes, please), black socks
Ragazzi: full tuxedo with bow tie, black dressy shoes, black socks
Arrival and Parking
We recommend dropping your singer first and then finding parking so they are not late for their call time. Singers may enter the front or the back of the church. We will have signs posted and volunteers directing singers to their warm-up space.
Patrons with mobility challenges should plan to be dropped off at the back entrance where the elevator to the sanctuary level (concert hall) is located. There will be a limited number of handicapped spaces available in the small lot adjacent to this back entrance. Please respect the reserved signs and only use these spots if you have the appropriate placard.
Singers should be in their warm-up space, dressed for their concert at the times listed below. This means getting dropped off about five minutes before the call time:
Cantilena, Cantabile and Ragazzi call time is 12:45PM. Please report directly to the sanctuary and bring your music.
Purcell, Britten, Holst call time is 3:30PM. Please report to the Fellowship Room downstairs. We will have volunteers and signage showing you the way. You do not need to bring your music. Please arrive with your tie tied!
Ragazzi, please pay attention to Mike's instructions for the 4PM concert. You should be back from your break by 3:30PM.
Choraliers, Con Gioia and Capriccio call time is 6:30PM. Choraliers and Capriccio report to the Chapel; Con Gioia reports to the Fellowship Room downstairs. You do not need to bring your music.
The ticket tables will open approximately 40 minutes before each concert. The hall will also open at this time, if possible. Please note, there may be a delay in opening the hall for the 1:30pm concert to accommodate our singers and their warm-up time. Thank you for your patience!
Seating is general admission; please respect the "Reserved" signage for our singers.
Tickets are $10 for adults; $5 for students ages 7-18; children under 7 are free. There is no charge for MYC singers wishing to attend a concert in which they do not sing, e.g., their sibling's concert. Wearing your concert wardrobe is the easiest way for the ushers to know you are an MYC singer. If you wish to stop at the ticket table to pick up a ticket, that works, too.
Families with singers in more than one concert receive complimentary tickets to the second (and third) concert they attend after purchasing tickets to the first. Please let us know at the time you purchase your tickets that you wish to attend a subsequent concert.
When the Concert Ends
Please take note of where your singer is seated in the hall and go to them after the concert. Our youngest singers have been instructed to wait by their seats for their parents. This will hopefully alleviate some of the post-concert chaos and speed up the process of clearing the hall after each concert.
We still have many volunteer slots open especially for the 7PM concert. Volunteers commit to arriving early and providing help to MYC staff and singer ensembles as needed while enjoying complimentary admission to the concert. Please consider lending a hand! Thank you!
