Welcome to MVYSO's Do-it-Yourself and On-Your-Own-Time Benefit Breakfast!  Normally, our Benefit Breakfast is held at the Beautiful Lake Wilderness Lodge with sweeping views of Lake Wilderness.  It's also catered by EJ's Custom Catering.  Unfortunately, this year, we had to cancel our gathering because of COVID-19.  What a bummer!   We have put our heads together, virtually of course, to bring you the next best thing!  Our breakfast—with all the same elements except the food— from the comfort of your own home!  Follow the easy steps below and enjoy MVYSO's Annual Benefit Breakfast!  By the way, it doesn't have to be for breakfast!  You can enjoy this anytime you want!   Thank you for attending ... in your own time.... at your own pace .... with your own food ......

Step 1: Make Your Breakfast

Our breakfast would have been catered by EJ's Custom Catering. EJ's is making meals to-go for delivery and curbside pickup. Consider supporting a local business and get your meal catered. Here's the link to their site!

Step 2: Enjoy Some Music

MVYSO Benefit Breakfast Music
Traditionally, MVYSO's Elite Ensembles perform music during the Benefit Breakfast each year. However, due to COVID-19 and mass cancellation of events and rehearsals, our ensembles had to get creative and make music separately from the comfort of their own homes! Each student was given a click track to listen to using headphones or earbuds while they video recorded themselves from their personal cell phones. The videos were then edited and combined – and VOILA! You have chamber ensembles. This was incredibly hard for our players as they were unable to hear one another or react to one another's body language while recording. We think they did an awesome job and are proud of their abilities to create beautiful music during this uncertain time.
