WCYO Alumni


As you may know, the WCYO has launched the Charles Ives Music Festival, an educational program and concert series led by CIMF Artistic Director Paul Frucht. This August 2020, we will hold our first CIMF summer workshop, which will offer participants the opportunity to focus on chamber music with professional Artist-Faculty and perform in an orchestra led by Conductor Eric Mahl. All WCYO alumni aged 21 or under are invited to participate. If you are interested in the full summer workshop program, please see SUMMER 2020

We also want to make you aware of a special opportunity we are offering to WCYO alumni only. We understand some of you may not be able to participate in the entire CIMF Summer Program, so we want to extend an invitation to join to perform in the orchestral only. During this challenging time when many of you are finding yourselves displaced from college, friends, and the adventure you embarked on when you completed high school and your time at WCYO, we want to invite you to reunite with Eric and fellow WCYO alumni this summer and perform with each other yet again, surrounded by friends old and new. 

This Orchestra Only option requires a time commitment of 10:15 AM – 12:30 PM from Monday, August 10 – Friday, August 14. There will be a dress rehearsal at that same time on Saturday, August 15th and a concert that evening at 7:00 PM. The Orchestra Only option has a nominal fee of $100 to cover music and venue costs.

To apply for the Orchestra Only option, please see the online application link below. You will be invoiced for the fee prior to start of the program in August.

Secure Online Application: ORCHESTRA ONLY

We do hope you will join us for our inaugural CIMF Summer Program!
