After many years as LYCO treasurer and camps administrator, Virginia de Groot is retiring from the LYCO Committee.
The LYCO and RSSC boards wish to thank Virginia for her huge contribution over the years. With Virginia’s retirement from these positions there will be changes to the registration process. We hope to make the transition as simple as possible.

Thanks to all LYCO members, from the start with the Brass Ensemble to William Tell, what a good concert.
I know you will all have moments that you wish had been different but that is the life of a musician. What impressed me and made me so happy about this concert is that the line of the music spoke. The music wasn’t interrupted by transitions that didn’t quite work or wrong notes, it was carried by the exquisite things that did work. That makes conducting so fun, pieces are cohesive so I can work with the music, not just hold the orchestra together – the orchestra does that itself by its knowledge of the music. It was just such a good concert.
Fantastic work in the Piccolo Strings. I loved the energy of the pieces Virginia chose and the ensemble was so good. Such a good start to any orchestral program to have that excitement.
