News And Updates
We are off to a great start at TBCYC! That’s right, we have changed our name. We are now the Toronto Beaches Children’s & Youth Chorus. We are delighted that our Youth division has grown and we want to highlight that in our name. Look for our new logo, and updated website soon. Our Chamber & Youth divisions just had a very successful trip to Cedar Glen YMCA camp where we got a chance to dive into our music and also to reconnect with friends as well as make some new friends. The Cedar Glen staff led us through some great activities like their high ropes course and outdoor maze. Next weekend is Cantabile’s turn to head to Cedar Glen for their own one day retreat.
We are very happy to welcome Cindy Kosa to our TBCYC staff. Cindy is our Thursday Prelude Conductor and we are also very pleased to announce Jessica Riley as our conductor of our new Wednesday Prelude class.
