and give voice to the issues of our times in an un-auditioned,
multi-generational chorus of about 130, and an auditioned chorale of about 50.

raises funds and awareness for worthy non-profit organizations addressing
issues and injustices in our community. The January concert raises money for
the ongoing operational expenses of the chorus. Finalists will be subject to a background check because youth
choristers sing in the MCC.
