CIYC embraced pandemic singing with a combination of virtual and in-person activities meeting best practice safety standards.  In collaboration with other choirs across the country, CIYC premiered After the Rain and Reunion, written by female composers Sarah Quartel and Karen Siegel.

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