Special Invitation for our Final Fall Rehearsal
Our final rehearsals of the fall semester will be December 13 and family and friends are invited to attend! We'll have more details to share next week but for now, please plan to attend on December 13th, either with your singer or on your own device! Grandparents, parents, siblings, and friends--all are welcome.

Next Semester Registration - Watch Your Email!
It's time to renew your participation in MYC for second semester! Families will be receiving information via email on Friday with all the details and instructions on how to register (we promise it will be easy!).

Our second semester of MYC begins Sunday, January 31 and will be a full 15-week experience for our singers ending on Sunday, May 23. It is our greatest hope that the public health directives may allow us to explore offering some in-person meetings in April or May but for now, we are planning a virtual semester with the same weekly schedule as the fall.

Thanks for watching your email tomorrow and reaching out to us with any questions--we're looking forward to welcoming everyone back in January!

Welcoming New Singers in January
We will be holding virtual auditions for new singers (in grades 5-12) interested in joining MYC second semester on Sunday, January 10. Please tell your friends and direct them to the Join a Choir page on our website for more information.

For younger students, ages 7-10, our winter session of introductory choir begins on January 31 and registration is now open on our website. Thanks for helping us spread the word!
