REGISTRATION & AUDITIONS

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.  Simply register below. In order to accommodate more youth participation, youth are divided into two casts, based on ZIP code. Click here to see cast divisions by ZIP code.

  • “Early Bird” registration for the full 2020–2021 season (both 1st & 2nd Semesters) for all youth and continuing Grand Chorus members will open this summer and will offer a 10% discount and ten-payment, three-payment, and full-payment options.

  • Regular youth choirs registration (2020–2021 season) will open at the close of “early bird” registration and will offer full-payment and three-payment options. Late registration will incur an additional tuition cost of $20.00 per choir. Participation in the youth choirs requires a full-season (both semesters) commitment.

  • Regular Grand Chorus registration (2020–2021 season) will open at the close of “early bird” registration and will offer full-payment and three-payment options. Late registration will incur an additional cost of $20.00. Participation in the Grand Chorus requires a full-season (both semesters) commitment.

AUDITIONS: Placement in the Grand Chorus (adults) and Symphony Orchestra is by audition only. Audition sign-ups for the 2020–2021 season are available.
