While COVID has made much of our lives more difficult, one bright light has been that at CYSO, we no longer have to wait for our favorite musicians to visit Chicago in order to schedule a masterclass with them. These days we can bring some of the world’s best musicians right into your living room through the virtual masterclasses we’ve featured this fall! Joined by some of CYSO’s most illustrious alums and friends, check out any that you might have missed over the past few months.
