A Tradition of Excellence in Community Concerts

The Music Company Orchestra is a 60-piece volunteer community orchestra performing for those who do not ordinarily hear orchestral music so they can experience the excitement of a live concert.  In addition to playing at area retirement centers and nursing homes, we support local needs/charities.

Thanks so much for spectacular performance.  It was absolutely wonderful and we are most grateful to all of you involved, both MCO and MVC, for spending their day making music to benefit UPH.  I tend to be a little emotional but I was moved to tears several times yesterday by the beauty of the songs performed by both sets of musicians.  This is a memory that I will cherish!
