The 2018-19 Season

Something old, something new...
Saturday, June 1, 2019
Bellevue Presbyterian Church
Welcome to the Bellevue Youth Choirs final concert of the 2018-2019 season: "Something old, something new..." This year as an organization we transformed from two separate organizations, Bellevue Girlchoir and Bellevue Boychoir, to one united organization, Bellevue Youth Choirs.
To celebrate this marriage-like merger, the BYC Choristers have prepared repertoire for the final MainStage concert of the season that is *old* from our choral library, *new* to the BYC choral library, *borrowed* from friends to BYC, and a couple of pieces that have a tint of *blue.* We are pleased to premiere a brand new piece by composer Cristi Cary Miller that was commissioned in January of 2019 by WA ACDA and NWKE, revel in another successful season, and say farewell to our departing seniors. Thank you for joining us!
