Kudos to everyone for your part in making our Fall Virtual experience work! It is not easy to provide an orchestra program on-line, with rehearsals, break out sessions, sectionals and more, when making music together in person is such an essential component of playing in an ensemble.
Strathmore is very proud of what MCYO has accomplished in these circumstances and deems it a model of virtual music education.
Thank you for your support, parents and musicians!
This situation won’t last forever, but it will last longer than we might have wished or expected. Strathmore/MCYO is following all of the required county and state mandates for operating during COVID, and as soon as we can safely move to more in-person programming, we will let you know when and how this will be done.
For now, the MCYO team of conductors and coaches is gearing up for another virtual semester for winter, which will end with late March virtual concert performances. Terrific repertoire has been selected and made ready for our students. For some, rehearsal work on new rep is already underway.
We’ll take a 2-week break for the holidays (no MCYO Wed Dec 23 and 30) and resume the same schedule we’ve been doing all Fall, starting up rehearsals again on Jan 6, 2021.
Dates for the March concert viewings to be announced after the holidays.
