On Saturday, May 22, MCC singers took Madison by storm. During this exciting day trip, choristers participated in a workshop with Madison Youth Chorale Artistic Director Michael Ross (MYC), along with his MYC singers. Mr. Ross led the two choirs in fun activities centered around music theory. Additionally, singers from both organizations came together and learned new songs.
It is opportunities like these that enhance our singers’ personal development, provide them the experience of working with different conductors, and build ensemble unity and trust. It is our goal that, throughout the workshop, youth gained new perspectives on music and the performing arts.
Following the workshop, MCC singers visited our State’s Capitol. The Capitol is a place of government, but it is also a place to view great works of art. The building itself is an impressive architectural work, and the artwork inside imparts meaning to the building as a whole.
Not only did choristers tour the building and learned about the history it holds, but they also performed on the steps of the Capitol. It was truly a great memory for our youth to cherish.
To cap off the day, MCC choristers enjoyed dinner together. After, they took on the challenge of an Escape Room before returning home.
