The Hub is open to anyone 14+.This summer program is for YSC members who wish to continue singing throughout the summer; community members who want to sing in a low-commitment, fun environment; students home on summer break; alumni unable to commit to the full year program but who still wish to keep a connection with the YSC community; and anyone else who wants to spend their summer in song! Our aim is to create a social, artsy hub where singers from across the organization and beyond (present, past, and new) will meet to sing together. Come with friends, sing with your siblings who may be in different divisions, have a great night of music as parents and kids, sing with other staff members and work with different directors, and come to a place for a few short weeks where people can reconnect without an expectation to put on a huge production. Rehearsals are Wednesday nights from 7:00-9:00, running July 4 - August 8. The music will be medium to hard, so previous musical experience is required. We'll explore genres such as a cappella, gospel, tribal, folk, pop, classical, and more! Register for all 6 rehearsals for $100 or drop in for a single session. Individual rehearsals are $20 in advance, or $25 at-the-door.
