2020 Honor Choir Event: March 28-29
COYC Rehearsals: March 15 & 22
Dear Honor Choir Members and School Directors,
In response to the confirmation of CVOID-19 in Cuyahoga County, the Youth Chorus’ rehearsal venue, Fairmount Temple in Beachwood, will be deep cleaning its facilities over the coming weekend and cancelling large gathrings for an undetermined amount of time. Given the immediate loss of rehearsal space combined with the uncertainty of what’s to come in the next few weeks, we have decided that cancelling the 2020 Honor Choir event and associated COYC rehearsals is the best course of action. The health and wellbeing of our students, audience members, and staff are our highest priority, and we believe the cancellation of this event is the most appropriate decision for our community. If there is an opportunity to reschedule this event in the summer, we will be in touch via email.
All registration fees will be refunded. You will receive a confirmation email once the reimbursement has been processed by our Finance Department. Please be advised that it may take up to 2 weeks for the refund to be disbursed.
Students who have already received their music should return it to their choir director. Choir directors will be contacted in the coming weeks to arrange a time when a chorus staff member can pick up the music at your school.
Interested in Auditioning for COYC for the 2020-21 Season?
Honor Choir members entering grades 9-12 next school year are strongly encouraged to audition for the 2020-21 season of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Chorus (COYC)!
Next season will begin with an amazing opportunity for the Youth Chorus to sing with The Cleveland Orchestra at the Blossom Music Center as we present a live movie presentation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! In addition to performances with The Cleveland Orchestra, the Youth Chorus regularly performs a major orchestral work with the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra as well as community engagement programs throughout the greater Cleveland area.
Audition dates and online registration will open soon. Honor Choir students will receive an email invitation to audition for COYC once we are ready for students to reserve time slots. For more information about the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Chorus and auditions, please go to coyc.cochorus.com.
Once again, we are disappointed that we must cancel this event due to circumstances beyond our control. We wish you good health and happiness in the remaining school year and hope to see you at future performances and events hosted by The Cleveland Orchestra family.
