2024 Boston/Palmyra Tour
As with all MCO tours, participation is completely optional. MCO provides the tour experience but will not coordinate your travel nor cover any of your expenses. This gives you the flexibility to arrange your own travel in a way that works best for you. You are welcome to bring non-participating family or friends with you. Only those who are performing should officially register for the tour.
When are the tour dates?
June 19–22, 2024
- Participants should arrive in Boston, MA, by the evening of Tuesday, June 18
- Boston area: June 19–20
- Travel day: June 21
- Palmyra, NY: June 22
We’ll be performing in the world-renowned Boston Symphony Hall, with special opportunities at local historic sites. We will announce additional details in the coming months.
What are the eligibility requirements to participate in the tour?
To be eligible to register for the tour, participants must participate in both semesters (1st and 2nd) of the 2023–2024 season.
Which ensembles are invited to participate in the tour?
All ensembles are invited to participate in the tour, including Young Singers Chorus.
Is tour registration separate from regular participation registration?
Yes. Not everyone who participates in the regular season will want to participate in the tour, so tour registration is separate. Tour registration will open for a brief period this fall after the season begins. Participants must be registered for the tour to participate in the tour.
Will there be a fee to participate in the tour?
There will be a tour fee for each registrant that is comparable to the tour fee charged for the 2022 California tour, which was $60 per participant or $180 per family (4+ participants). Only those participating in tour performances need to officially register for tour. Non-participating family and friends do not need to register.
How do I register myself or my child to participate in MCO?
Go to the Join Us page and select your locale.
If I have more than one youth who would like to participate, do I need to register each of them?
Yes, each youth must be registered for their own ensemble, even if two of them are in the same ensemble.
I’m having trouble registering. What should I do?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any registration questions.
When are auditions for the Grand Chorus and/or Symphony Orchestra?
Auditions are generally held in August and January, depending on the location.
What is MCO Across America?
