MCC Community Band

The MCC Community Band includes a mix of students and community members.

Directed by Dr. Rob Hunter and Brian Murphy, the MCC Community Band is made up of both students and community members.

Scholarships are available to students of all ages – you do not have to be a music major or a full-time student. Find out how to apply to scholarships by texting SCHOLARSHIPS to 480-787-0777
