MCA Virtual Music Division Concert

Saturday | December 5 | 6:00-7:00pm
MCA Facebook or YouTube Channel

Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) invites you to join us on our Facebook Page or You Tube Channel as we premiere our third virtual Music Division Concert. The concert will feature instrumentalists and vocalists of all ages and experience levels who participate in private music lessons. A couple of MCA instructors may even perform. We miss hearing the hallways of the Valencia Arts Center filled with the beautiful music from our students and faculty but we are happy that our students are still growing as musicians and that we can still hear and celebrate them in this unique way.

A special thanks to the instructors and families who continue to support these talented and resilient musicians on their musical journey!

Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is a member of the River Arts Alliance. To learn more about the benefits of membership, please visit:
