ABOUT THE MCC
The Miami Children’s Chorus is a not-for-profit community arts organization
specializing in choral music education and performance for children age 8-18 in Miami-Dade County. In three levels of ensemble – beginning, intermediate and advanced – MCC provides weekly rehearsals where children practice the life-long skills of commitment, respect for self and others, and the rewards of a dedicated effort while learning the skills and techniques necessary for healthy vocal production, musicianship and artistry.
MCC has performed with PBS favorite André Rieu, the Cleveland Orchestra, Israeli Chamber Orchestra, Florida Grand Opera, Gloria Estefan and made a Super Bowl appearance with Queen Latifah. One could say with confidence that the MCC unites voices to change lives.
Recent alum Edmond Rodriguez commented on his experience in the MCC: “MCC has molded my respect for others and myself. Being forced to trust those around me, I learned that respect stems from understanding the direction in which a group of musicians choose to pursue. Music has the power to take us to another dimension of communication, and MCC exposed me to that concept from the very beginning. MCC teaches you how to be social, passionate and caring. For me, MCC distinguished the difference between good and great, and I am so grateful to have been a part of this community. It will be a part of me forever.” Edmond is now a freshman in the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California. As a freshman he was selected by audition to sing in the USC Chamber Singers – the highest level of ensemble on the USC campus.
The Miami Children’s Chorus is supported in part by the Miami-Dade County
Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners; the City of Miami Beach, Cultural Affairs Program, Cultural Affairs Council; Citizens Interested in Arts, Inc., and Symphonettes.
