When we sing,
we change who we are.
When we change who we are,
we change the world.

Midcoast Community Chorus is Changing the Midcoast One Song at a Time

Rockland – The Midcoast Community Chorus (MCC) performed to a packed auditorium at its Tenth Anniversary Concert, "A Time In Song,” on June 16thin Rockport. MCC donated $5,000 to its concert beneficiary, One Community Many Voices (OCMV), a Rockland-based non-profit.

One Community Many Voices (OCMV) provides gap funding, when no other resources are available, to help our Midcoast neighbors resolve a hardship related to: employment/skill building, fund youth aspirations, assist elderly independent living, provide transportation, or assure well-being.  OCMV provides proactive funding solutions for individuals or families to prevent a temporary barrier from turning into a financial, self-confidence, or well-being crisis. Through the fellowship model recipients return by self-selected volunteerism. To learn more about One Community Many Voices go to www.ocmv.org

"It has been a pleasure to work with the dedicated chorus members and staff of MCC over the past few months. They truly exemplify their mantra that the voice is the sound of the soul - all voices deserve to be heard - singing together builds community. The 153 member chorus sang from their souls and demonstrated the power of music. Just as community singing has long been a catalyst for change, OCMV’s fellowship model intends to implement change and enable individuals and families to become involved in making a difference in their own and other’s lives. We look forward to working with MCC in the future” said Audrey Lovering from OCMV.

"It was our delight to select OCMV as our annual beneficiary and to support their first year of becoming a community resource by providing both educational opportunities and a financial donation. We wish them success as an organization whose mission is in close alignment with MCC’s mission "to sing in community for the community,” said Penny Dunning, MCC board member.
