    Cachet Trio, fondly known to YRCC as Janet, Kevin, and Kevin, will be performing at Cachet Restaurant in Newmarket as part of the Newmarket Music Festival! 


    Saturday nights at Cachet are free, and so are Thursdays at Riverwalk Commons and Fridays at Market Brewing Company. Be sure to catch some live music this summer. You can't beat free! And, the three day festival at the end of August is very reasonably priced. I've been every year! I hope to see you at Cachet to see Cachet!

    for more information, click here to go to the Newmarket Music Festival website.

    Be sure to attend our AGM, annual general meeting, this Monday, June 4th!

    We will be as brief as possible with the business of the choir so that we can have time to eat and sing together.

    The executive takes good care of all of us.  This is a good opportunity to thank them and to socialize with your choir family before heading off to your summer activities.

    Don't forget to come to choir for one more Monday, though! We're meeting in our room for an extra rehearsal to prepare for the October concert with the Police Choirs at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.
