MYO Rehearsals Are Suspended Due to Coronavirus Concerns
All MYO Choir and Orchestra rehearsals are suspended from March 12 through the end of April and our March 22 and April 5 concerts have been cancelled due to coronavirus concerns. Anyone who purchased tickets for the March 22 and April 5 concerts through the MYO website will receive an automatic refund. The refunds will be activated by MYO Staff and you do not need to call the office to request them.
