A Madison Symphony Christmas
Performance Evening Number 1 | Friday, December 13, 2019
Happy Friday, All!

Tonight is our first performance with the symphony--thank you for reviewing the details below. We're looking forward to an amazing weekend together!

Tonight is full concert (fancy duds) wardrobe:
Con Gioia, Capriccio, Cantilena, and Cantabile: black MYC concert dress, black hosiery, flat, black dress shoes. Please wear black undergarments, if possible, and double-check that undergarment straps are not visible. Thank you!

Ragazzi: spiffy tuxedo with bow tie, black dress shirt, black shoes, black socks.

All: Please do not wear any excessive jewelry (no visible necklaces, large earrings, etc.), nor perfumes/scents.

Schedule for Tonight
Con Gioia and Capriccio MSO call time is 7:00PM | pick up is 8:15PM**
Cantilena, Cantabile, and Ragazzi call time is 6:45PM | pick up is 9:45PM

**This pick up time coincides with Intermission. Families attending the performance--you have plenty of time to exit Overture Hall at Intermission to pick up your singer at Security and return in time for the second half. (Please do not leave Overture Hall before Intermission.)

Con Gioia and Capriccio MSO singers do NOT need to bring their music.

Singers should have their security passes ready to show the Overture staff upon arrival. (MYC staff will be at Security if you forget your pass.)

The full schedule and other important reminders can be found in your (previously shared and distributed) MSO Rehearsal and Concert Primer.

Please plan ahead to make sure you have time to find parking as downtown will be busy all weekend. Parking ramps near Overture will be charging their flat "Event Parking" fee of $8 upon entry. Cash or credit cards are accepted.

Thank you for not blocking traffic on N Henry Street during pick up and drop off. Please pull your car to a temporary parking spot along the curb or circle the block until there's a space. Traffic needs to be able to move in both directions as this is a main corridor for emergency vehicles.
