On Fire for BYC

Dear BYC Community,

This week and next, many of you will receive a stimulus check in your accounts and mailboxes. One of our board members has decided to donate theirs back to BYC:

“Stimulus checks are intended to stimulate the economy. I want BYC to be there for my kids and grandkids. BYC is the economy I want to stimulate. Please join me!”

Can you join our board and donate part or all of your stimulus check to BYC?

April is here: can you help BYC?

Dear BYC community, 

First and foremost, we miss you all so very much! The songs, the laughter, the goofiness and the hard work of all of our choristers - it’s not the same without it all. We’re especially sad to have lost the opportunity to share our singers’ music at the two scheduled MainStage performances in March and June. 

This is a difficult time. We’ve heard from so many of you out there about job losses, the struggle of homeschooling while working from home, the anxieties of worrying about the health of older parents and the long-term economic impact of this situation. We, too, are participating in the same slew of emotions, and feel for our community so very much.

BYC Covid-19 Update 3/18/20: Season cancellation

Dear BYC families, 

First, we want to say that we are thinking of you all and are missing our weekly music during this time of crisis! We hope that you are all staying close to your families and are finding ways to make music on a daily basis. 

We are terribly saddened to share with you that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the BYC staff and board have made the unfortunate decision to close operations for the rest of the 2019-2020 season. This means that the March and June concerts, as well as tours, activities, and rehearsals, are all canceled. Staff have been laid off and will be paid through mid-April.

BYC Coronavirus update 3/11/20

Dear BYC families, 

After rehearsals on March 9th, BYC staff have decided that we will cancel all upcoming rehearsals through March 22nd. We will re-evaluate the situation for March 23rd. 

Please note that this decision was made with the support of our rental home at Cross of Christ, as well as our staff and families, in addition to recommendations from King County Public Health. While we don't know of any COVID-19 cases in our community, we believe that it is the right time for us to make this decision and practice social distancing as we anticipate further closures of workplaces, schools, and activities.

BYC Coronavirus update 3/6/20

Dear BYC families, 

Thank you all for your patience and flexibility during this unsettling time. As we monitor the situation, we continue to prioritize the safety and well-being of our community while still thinking of ways to provide musical experiences to our choristers. 

It is important to note that there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Bellevue School District or BYC community at this time. Based on recommendations from Public Health, and following the Bellevue School District, we are currently planning to hold rehearsals next week as planned, barring any major developments regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19).
