We are so proud of the incredible musicianship, commitment, expression, and all-around awesomeness shown by our singers yesterday. Congrats to all on a wonderful day of concerts!
Just a few important pieces of information for everyone:
No Rehearsals (including tonight)
Singers are done rehearsing for the season (this includes boychoirs; remember there is no rehearsal tonight). Several choir have additional events (Cantabile/Ragazzi in early June; Con Gioia in mid-June) so look for continued information about those events.
A Concert for a Cause
MIG Commerical Real Estate and United Way of Dane County's Rosenberry Society present "A Concert for a Cause", featuring Kristine Mirelle, tomorrow night at the Brink Lounge (701 E Washington Ave). Tickets are $25 at the door, but the first 40 people that say "I'm with MYC" get in FREE! (Here's more info about Kirstine Mirelle who has seen MYC in action both in Aberdeen and Madison!) Doors open at 5:45pm; 6:15pm concert.
They will continue on Thursdays through the end of the school year. Look for information about returning wardrobe (for some singers), music, reminders about auditions and information about singers' placement for next season.
