Workshop Day September 17 at HHS

Workshop Day is our opening day at Ann Arbor Youth Chorale. It’s one day when we accomplish a lot: members receive an AAYC t-shirt, get their attendance photo taken, have the chance to purchase an AAYC tote bag (perfect for carrying music folders to and from rehearsals), meet their directors and fellow singers, rehearse songs, and bring a parent or guardian for a meeting at the end. At that meeting, the choirs will actually sing something they just learned!

Workshop Day also kicks off our season because regular rehearsals begin the following Tuesday, September 20 at Bethlehem United Church of Christ (BUCC), 423 S 4th Ave, Ann Arbor.

Please put this information on your calendars:

From Friday, May 6 through Sunday, May 8, just present this AAYC CPK Flyer (hardcopy or on a mobile device) at their Briarwood Mall restaurant and they’ll donate 20% of your order to Youth Chorale. It’s as simple as that!

Friday, May 6th is the Spring Concert dress rehearsal – maybe catch dinner at CPK before or after rehearsal?

Saturday, May 7th is our Spring Concert – celebrate a great concert with dinner afterwards!

This easy way to give to AAYC runs all three days for dine-in, carry-out, curbside orders, catering, plus all beverages. CPK will accept both paper and digital copies of the flyer, so please share it with family, friends and business associates who might like to help Ann Arbor Youth Chorale. Thanks to CPK for making this fundraiser available to us!
