Happy Thursday from Madison Youth Choirs!

As our four sessions of fall introductory choir approach their final classes in the coming weeks, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to navigate November and December. As always, if you have any questions after reading the information provided below, please don't hesitate to be in touch with us.

Performing Choir Rehearsal Visits
All introductory choir members are invited to visit either a Choraliers (girlchoir) rehearsal or Purcell (boychoir) rehearsal this Sunday, November 19 (Choraliers) or Monday, November 29 (Purcell). This is a fantastic opportunity for introductory choir students to see what a larger performing choir rehearsal feels like.

The Details
All Colla Voce singers are invited to visit Choraliers rehearsal this Sunday, November 19, from 5pm-5:25pm. (Sunday Colla Voce students attending Choraliers should arrive at 5pm. After visiting Choraliers they will then continue their regular class until 6:15pm.)

All Tallis singers are invited to visit Purcell rehearsal next Monday, November 20, from 6:15pm-7:00PM.

Both Choraliers and Purcell ensembles rehearse on the second floor of the Westgate Mall (Westgate Studios). Singers do not need to RSVP--they can simply show up and join rehearsal at the times listed.
