Nor did it happen because both choirs are celebrating significant anniversaries this season, said Mastersingers founder and director Clyde Thompson. Discussing a conversation with YCCO founder and director Beth Basham, Thompson said, laughing, "Neither of us had really thought about the fact that this is the 10th anniversary for Mastersingers and 25th anniversary for the youth choir.

Clyde Thompson, front left, will lead the 53-member Central Oregon Mastersingers in the holiday program "A Family Christmas" this weekend a the Tower Theatre in Bend.
It will be followed with works by composers Richard Dering, Alfred Burt, Bernard Flies and Thompson himself ("There is No Rose").
The first portion of the program also features "Estampie Natalis," "a contemporary piece by Vaclav Nelhybel that is a wild, unique piece," Thompson said.
"It has a Medieval sound, combined with some flavor of a Middle Eastern dervish dance. Very fun. He added that members of the Central Oregon Symphony will play on that piece, including Janet Gesme (viola), Travis Allen (cello), Larry Meyers and Cheri Redgrave (percussion).
The other big piece before intermission is Morten Lauridsen's "O Magnum Mysterium," which Thompson described as "absolutely gorgeous.
"Three of the numbers will also involve the audience singing along, so it will end with audience participation," Thompson said.
She has one of the top youth choir organizations in the country," Thompson said.
The Mastersingers also plan to make this season special, Thompson said, noting that collaboration will be a theme.
"We're going to be doing several school visits (in March), collaborating with the high school choirs in Bend, taking part in their concerts with them, and doing a lot of school visitations with small groups from the Mastersingers at choir rehearsals, just as a way of supporting and nurturing good choral singing among young people," he said.
