Millennial® Choirs & Orchestras Across America
For youth who live outside a 90-mile radius of our regular rehearsal areas in California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, and Idaho. MCO Across America (MCOA) is now entering its second season.
IMPORTANT UPDATE (7.21.2021): Due to insufficient interest, we will not be able to offer MCOA Grand Chorus this season.
Please read the IMPORTANT INFORMATION section below prior to registering. Additional details may be found on the FAQ’s page.
To gain a better understanding of MCO, please read the About MCO section, including the Performing Ensembles and Participation Info pages. We also encourage you to visit our YouTube channel or listen to one of our six albums.
REGISTRATION: Participation in youth ensembles (ages 4–18) does not require an audition. Participation in the Grand Chorus or Symphony Orchestra is not offered at this time.
- Early-bird registration for the full 2021–2022 season (both 1st & 2nd Semesters) is now closed.
- Regular 1st semester youth choirs registration for the 2021–2022 season is now open and closes the Monday following the first rehearsal of the semester. It offers full-payment and three-payment options. Late registration will incur an additional tuition cost of $20.00 per choir.
All dates, plans, and timelines are subject to change.
2021–2022 SEASON CALENDAR
Assuming COVID-19 restrictions continue to be lifted, MCO plans to return to in-person rehearsals and concerts in the 2021–2022 season. We will continue to offer pre-recorded video rehearsals for MCOA if there is sufficient interest, as indicated by the number of people registered to participate. MCOA participants will be invited to travel, at their own expense, to participate in these concerts (one locale only, whichever works best for them). There will not be a video submission participation option.
