TRAVEL DISTANCE TO & FROM REHEARSAL

In California, Arizona, Texas, and Utah there are countless stories of families making the commitment to drive anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to participate in MCO once per week. Although our Utah locale rehearses in Provo, some are driving from Salt Lake (1 hr) and even Ogden (1.5 hrs). Our California locale rehearses in Newport Beach, but numerous participants travel from San Diego (2 hrs) and Los Angeles (1 hr). In Arizona, groups travel from Surprise (1.5 hrs) and even Sedona (3 hrs) to rehearse in Gilbert! In Dallas, almost everyone drives 30-40 minutes or more because Texas is just a huge place.

These families have become creative with their carpools, recruiting more families to participate so driving isn’t a burden on one family or individual. They are doing this because they clearly see the intrinsic value and unmatched quality of experience that MCO is in their lives and the lives of their children. We are already seeing this in Idaho, with many people traveling from Twin Falls. So before you convince yourself that the rehearsal venue may be too far away for you, we encourage you to capture the larger vision of this great cause. MCO is not just another community choir and orchestra; it is a movement. It will powerfully impact your life and the life of your family. It is worth it!
