The vocal/choral music program at MCC is designed to meet the needs of both majors and non-majors alike. Students interested in being a music major should contact the Music Department before registering for classes due to the core requirements for majors and the rotation of required classes.

Several choral ensembles are available at both campuses and offer a variety of music literature. Students who are vocal/choral majors are required to participate in a performance group each semester as part of the core requirements.

Visit the Arts at MCC website to see all current productions.
