Dear CYC Board and Parents,

Here's to summer!  We've made it this far in the shadow of Covid-19 and now we continue to move forward, still sheltering, masking, distancing, and gloved!  Although Cabrillo Youth Chorus will not be holding classes this summer, there is a fantastic alternative for enjoyment of music from some of our wonderful teachers. I can highly recommend these excellent teachers who can offer a variety of ways to further musical skills, enjoy new music, and participate with others electronically.

You can contact these teachers individually and engage them privately.  Each of them has experience teaching online and each are gifted with many talents.  Their information is listed below:
