Music education, reinvented
COVID-19 has impacted how we interact in so many ways, and choirs have been particularly affected. BYC is proud to present our reinvention of in-person rehearsals -- our virtual Musicianship Training Workshop, and the new Virtual Choir Project. Sign up your chorister below!
2020-21 Virtual Season
WHO: Singers 8 years and older
REHEARSALS: Mondays, beginning March 15, 5:15-5:45PM weekly.
VIDEO PREMIERE: Monday, May 3, 5PM.
COST: $35 suggested donation, or choose your price.
Songs from past BYC seasons include: Farmyard Songs, Bile Them Cabbage Down, The Pasture, and You Are My Sunshine.
Spring is appearing all around us, and with it comes a sense of hope. As we enter into spring, join BYC for our second virtual choir project of the 2020-21 season - RENEWAL. Throughout March and April, BYC singers new and returning are invited to attend brief weekly rehearsals via Microsoft Teams. A final concert video will premiere on YouTube May 3rd, accompanied by a chorister celebration! April showers bring May flowers, and so too will our hard work blossom.
Instructions on how to record audio and video will be sent to choristers after enrolling. No special materials are needed - just a device (phone or computer) with audio and video capabilities!
Students enrolled in Musicianship do not need to sign up. Virtual Choir is part of their weekly rehearsals!
Third grade and older
One weekly class, taught by the intrepid duo of Nicholas Gorne and Nathan Shiu, will focus on preparing thoughtful and independent musicians.
Musicianship skills such as solfège, takadimi rhythms, scales, modes, and sight-reading will provide the foundation for more confident music-making.
One class will operate weekly with the option to add another class depending on registration numbers.
Tuition will be paid online via the Groupanizer store. Payments can be made in full at the time of registration or can be scheduled for automatic deposit monthly.
Scholarships may be available for those in financial need. Please email us to see if you qualify.
