Participation Information

Who Can Join?

MCO welcomes all youth and adults in the community who agree to abide by its Participant Handbook, regardless of their religious affiliation. Participants in the choirs pay to participate, while orchestra participants are volunteers.

For the specific details of each ensemble (choirs and orchestras), please see performing ensembles.

The youth choirs (ages 4 through 12th grade) are non-audition. Online registration is required. Click here to register.

Placement in the Grand Chorus (adults) and Symphony Orchestra is by audition only. Auditions will be held prior to the beginning of each semester or season, depending on your locale. Click here to sign up for an audition.


Millennial Choirs & Orchestras is among the most affordable music education organizations in America and is an inexpensive supplement to an academic education and private music lessons. Tuition (for youth choirs) or a participation fee (for the adult Grand Chorus) is charged for ensembles that rehearse on a weekly basis. There is no fee for participation in the Symphony Orchestra. The proceeds from tuition and fees help to defray the expenses of the organization.

Please refer to your specific locale’s page on this website (MCO Across America, California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, or Idaho) to see tuition deadlines and rates. Tuition rates are also listed in the Participant Handbook. Tuition is paid online as part of the registration process. There is an option during registration to divide the tuition into monthly payments. Click here to register.

The participation fee for the Grand Chorus (adults) is due prior to the first rehearsal, and instructions will be given to those who are accepted into the choir.
