To Young Musicians and our dear MCYO families,
MCYO cannot wait to begin making music together with you live and in-person, but at this point in time, due to current COVID restrictions & in keeping with safety guidelines being implemented by regional school systems and other public venues, MCYO will start on-line for the Fall semester. Please know that we will be prepared to return to live rehearsals & concerts at the Music Center as soon as is safe to do so! The MCYO team has been working diligently to come up with new performance opportunities and enhanced virtual formats including:
- live-streaming concerts
- possible outdoor concert venues
- a new immersive cinematic virtual orchestra concert experience!
Our staff has also been busy developing enhanced on-line rehearsal strategies which will provide our musicians with quality music instruction, rehearsals & sectionals, plus enrichment classes paired with a new and exciting partnership with University of Maryland School of Music. MCYO will continue to rehearse on our typical Wednesday night schedule. Other classes, concerts and special events will be announced on our calendar.
As we enter our 75th Anniversary season of MCYO, we look forward to creating amazing, passionate musical memories and experiences for and with all of our musicians and families! For see our various groups, watch our final Virtual Concert from last season, please visit our YouTube Page.
The MCYO team
