Milwaukee Youth Chorale May 19, 2009
Building Noteworthy Character
Dear MYC Singers: Thanks to all who attended the combined rehearsal this past Saturday. We appreciate your efforts!
The Milwaukee Youth Chorale is comprised of young men and women who are experienced singers entering grades 9-12. The ensemble studies and performs outstanding choral literature of many styles and time periods. Most of the music that the choir performs is advanced high school/collegelevel repertoire. Singers are expected to be strong contributors and leaders in their school choirs.
MCC IS PERFORMING AT THE MARCUS CENTER MAY 31! We are all so excited to have our 15th Anniversary Concert at Uihlein Hall in the Marcus Center--the premier concert venue in the area. Please wear your formal uniform for the concert.
