Alumni News – Issue 2, June 2021

Hello EYSO Alumni,

I hope you’re all having a great start to your summers! The sun and warmth have been a welcome change as the world adjusts to this new normal.

On behalf of the EYSO team, I hope you were able to enjoy our season finale concert Heroes. I don’t know about you, but hearing Turtle Dove transports me right back to the stage and my final concert as an EYSO student.

Additionally, our alumni family has been joined by 50 new EYSO alumni! We had a great Class of 2021 barbeque in May, and we look forward to welcoming those students to our EYSO Alumni Network.

Over the summer we’ll be hard at work, having just completed auditions for the 2021-2022 season. Look for some hints before the big announcement of the theme for next season (our 46th), and we hope to have you join us as a part of it!

Congratulations to the Class of 2021, our newest alumni!
