Communication

CYS Billboard is a section of the CYS website specifically for musicians and parents. Each CYS program has its own Billboard page. On the Billboard page, you will find an archive of the newsletters issued this season, rehearsal and concert schedules, announcements, suggested repertoire information, fundraising information, program policies, and other helpful information pertaining to your program. The Billboard page also has an easy link to complete an absence form. This is a site that should be bookmarked on your internet browser and does not require a login to access.

CYS Login: This is the login information provided in the audition results notification letter (sent via USPS) or Registration Letter (for returning members) to complete your registration info. This site takes you to complete the Member Information Form, and provides you a link to download the season calendar for your program. This private site also provides information about the program you are enrolled in, as well as the link to the Billboard page for your program.

CYS Newsletters: Almost all CYS updates will be sent via email. There are two types of emails you will receive from us: Marketing emails include occasionally concert and event announcements that pertain to any CYS program. Operations emails (aka: weekly newsletters) are specific to your program and provide rehearsal reminders, concert details, and other announcements. Please do not “unsubscribe” on any of these, as it will remove you entirely from receiving any CYS newsletters.

CYS uses VerticalResponse to email our newsletters. Some email servers may restrict delivery of our newsletters; therefore, to help resolve this issue, please add "@mail.vresp.com" to your contact list.
