Directed by Dr. Rob Hunter , Paul Brewer, and Chris Reidy the MCC Concert Band offerings emphasize instrumental techniques and the preparation of all styles of band literature for ensemble performance. Percussion will be offered as a percussion ensemble and explore music specific to percussion.  The concert band and percussion ensemble is made up of MCC students, both those pursuing music degrees as well as those on non-music tracks who want to continue performing and progressing on their instrument. High school students are also welcome to attend.  An audition may be required . Please register now.

Flexible meeting times Tues/Thurs 2:30 – 4:25pm. We’ll work with your schedule and you do not have to be available during this specific time to enroll.  We will have live online sessions offered but they will also be recorded so you can participate at anytime of day or night.
