We are embracing pandemic singing by collaborating with choirs around the country, performing two pieces we have commissioned for this time.  Music will bring us together!

CIYC will offer a hybrid approach of indoor, masked, widely distanced in-person singing and virtual synchronous and asynchronous activities.

Let us share the gift of song with you this season!

Spring 2021 Season Highlights:

CIYC will premiere new pieces written by female composers Sarah Quartel and Karen Siegel.

2019-2020 Season Highlights:

CIYC strives for excellence in music making while building a community of musicians.  Last year’s collaborations with the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra included:

  • Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana (October 2019)
  • Joys of the Season (December 12, 2019)
  • Works by Gabriel Fauré (April 18, 2020, cancelled)

John Frayne of the News-Gazette wrote of our Carmina  Burana collaboration with CUSO, “It was the most successful concert of this ensemble in my memory.”
