The concert will be at Freeport Performing Arts Center at 7 PM, free admission although a donation is requested. $10 suggested amount.
Alumni, we want you to come join us! Whether you sang for the full 9 years with WYC or just one year, please come join us. We would like you to register with us so that we are sure to have enough music and folders for everyone. Rehearsal will start at 1 PM and last until 5:30; we will have a pizza supper along with some other items, and start the concert at 7 PM. Come early on Saturday (details TBD) and browse the early year scrapbooks and view the photoboards from over the years. Visit with your fellow singers and enjoy meeting other alumni.
