Welcome (back) to Cantilena!
Dear Singers in Cantilena,

My name is Mary Schmidt, and I have the great fortune to spend this year with you at MYC as your conductor.
Before retiring from teaching in 2015, I happily worked with high school singers for 36 years. It will be good to be with young musicians again and I am looking forward to collaborating with each of you in the partnership of creating beautiful music.

Much of my summer has been spent thinking about our time together. Repertoire has been carefully chosen that will reflect the concert themes and will be meaningful to study and perform. I am excited!

Enjoy your first week of school and know that I am eagerly awaiting meeting you.
