Happy Tuesday, Scotland Families, Chaperones and Staff!
In just 58 days all the music will be learned, all the bags will be packed (with great-fitting wardrobe), and all eyes will be on Aberdeen as we begin our 11-day adventure together. This email contains reminders as well as new information. Thank you for reading it thoroughly and making a plan to accomplish each action item by its due date (or taking care of any action items overdue ASAP.)

With just two rehearsals remaining before we break until July, there is a lot to accomplish! Thank you for being on time which means arriving 5-7 minutes before rehearsal begins to get settled. We start on time and every minute is valuable! As a reminder, these rehearsals (and the parent meeting) are required as communicated since the tour was announced:

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

P.S. Just for chaperones: Don't forget we are meeting (required) on Wednesday, June 6, at Sequoya Branch Library Meeting Room B from 6pm-8:30pm. We'll remind you!

Thank you for paying attention to every email, deadline, and action item!
Action Item Overdue: Purcell, Britten, and Holst Tour Members
Please return ALL your concert wardrobe items ASAP: Blue blazer, white Oxford shirt, khaki pants, boychoir tie along with the completed wardrobe return sheet linked below (was due by Wednesday, May 23).

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.
Action Item Overdue (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. If you have not yet completed the Feed Me! form, please do so ASAP (was due Wednesday, May 23. 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 All (NEW): Wardrobe Fittings With Ian™
Between now and June 12 all singing tour members will be fitted for the concert wardrobe items they need. As a first step, Ragazzi members have filled out their wardrobe query and Purcell, Britten, and Holst members have returned all their current wardrobe with the intake sheet indicating what fits and what needs replacing. (If you have not yet done this, PLEASE take care of this detail ASAP.)

Since all singing tour members likely need at least one wardrobe item fitted, please sign up for a Wardrobe Fitting With Ian™ using the form below. Again, all fittings need to be accomplished before June 12.

It would be helpful if you arrive with your measurements (height, weight, inseam and waist) already written down on a piece of paper with your name.
Action Item: Very Important Tour Documents Due June 8
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. (Feel free to wait until June 7 to turn in your packet.)
Action Item All: 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!).
Supplemental Tour Wardrobe Items Now Available!
Because we love our Scotland Tour logo, and we know you do, too, we have put together a collection of items for anyone to purchase. Thank you for being patient with the Google Form when recording your order. Payments should be made by check and all orders are due no later than Friday, June 8. You are encouraged to confirm cut and size before ordering. Samples are available in the MYC office and will also be at the meeting on June 7. All sales are final.
