2018-2019 Season

Winter Concert Series

Resilience

This fall, MYC is thrilled to welcome guest artist Tony Memmel, a singer-songwriter and guitarist whose story of ingenuity and resilience will inspire young singers and audience members alike. Born without a left forearm or hand, Tony taught himself to play guitar by building a homemade cast out of Gorilla Tape, and has become an internationally acclaimed musician, thoughtful teacher, and ambassador for young people with limb differences. Tony will join our choirs as we present a concert series focused on our ability to overcome personal challenges both visible and invisible, and along the way discover the limitless possibilities that exist inside each of us.

Spring Concert Series

Legacy

This spring, Madison Youth Choirs will return to the beautiful Capitol Theater to present a concert series celebrating the enduring power of the arts, featuring repertoire that has resonated through multiple generations, connects us to a folk tradition, or musically ties us to fellow singers from a distant time and place. Join us as we explore the meaning of the ancient aphorism ars longa, vita brevis, roughly translating to “life is short, art is long.”
