Happy Wednesday, Scotland Families, Chaperones and Staff!
We depart on our Scotland adventure in 64 days! We've had one amazingly productive rehearsal and are looking forward to seeing everyone again in the next two weeks:

Sunday, June 3, at Westgate
4:00pm-6:30pm | Required Rehearsal

5:00pm-6:00pm | Required Parent/Singer Meeting
Please make sure at least one parent is in attendance. Singers will attend this meeting with their parent(s) then proceed to rehearsal (also required).

6:00pm-8:30pm | Required Rehearsal

Thank you for reading this email thoroughly, paying attention to each deadline we publish and being responsive to our emails. This is a huge logistical undertaking and we appreciate your timely cooperation! As always, if you have questions, please ask.
Action Item: Purcell, Britten, and Holst Tour Members
Please return ALL concert wardrobe items: blue blazer, white Oxford shirt, khaki pants, boychoir tie along with the completed wardrobe return sheet linked below by Wednesday, May 23 (that's TODAY!).

Please do NOT return your red MYC polo unless it no longer fits.

Items may be returned at any time: if our office door is closed, please leave items by the door, clearly labeled and with your completed wardrobe return form attached.

Ragazzi tour members: watch for a separate email with wardrobe action steps specific to you. Thanks!
Action Item: Double-Check Your Gateway Info
We are ticketing by this Friday, May 24. Please log on to your Gateway registration and triple-check the following:
  • tour participant's name is entered EXACTLY as it appears on the passport they will be using this summer
  • birthdate is entered correctly
  • meal preferences have been recorded for our KLM flights
Action Item: Very Important Tour Documents
Packets were distributed at rehearsal on Monday and the documents inside are due back to MYC by Friday, June 8. Please check in with your singer to make sure the packet arrived home!

Thank you for not delaying in getting started on these forms--especially the Consent for Minor Child to Travel form as it requires the notarized signature of both birth (or adoptive) legal parents/guardians. A Notary Public (or 2 or 3) will likely be available on June 7 at our required parent/singer meeting for your convenience. Please remember that both parents must sign the consent form in the presence of a notary (separate forms may be used).

We will have a bin at the parent meeting on June 7 to collect completed forms for your convenience.
Action Item ALL: Festival ID and Food, Glorious Food
Specific food allergy and meal preference information needs to be provided to the Festival staff. On days when a box lunch is being provided, this is especially important as the talented commissary staff will prepare the exact number of vegetarian, nut-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, etc., boxed lunches we need according to the information we provide. Please use the button below to record your specific information by Wednesday, May 23 (that's TODAY). This form will also be used to prepare our ID badges so an answer from every tour participant is needed: singers, chaperones, and staff. Thanks!
Action Item: Tour Wardrobe Items: Order Info Due by June 8
Each tour member--including chaperones and staff--is receiving eight pieces of clothing, branded with our tour logo, as part of their official tour wardrobe (in addition to singers' concert wardrobe):
  • two proper polos
  • five fabulous T-shirts
  • and one (awesome) track jacket

These items are included in your tour price and participants will be asked to wear these pieces on specific days during the tour.

Samples of each piece of the tour wardrobe are available to try on in the MYC office. Please plan to stop by before June 7 to choose your size and style. Important: The production time for these items is tight and will not allow for exchanges: please prioritize trying on each piece and making an informed choice when you record your order.
To summarize: you do NOT need to purchase anything but we DO need to receive from you (chaperones, singers and staff) the completed Required Wardrobe Item form linked below by Friday, June 8 (firm deadline--please don't ask us to guess your size and style!).

Optional Action Item Coming Soon: Supplemental Tour Wardrobe Items
Because we love our Scotland Tour logo, and we know you do, too, we are putting together a collection of items for anyone to purchase. Link to order coming soon!
