MPAC hosts many programs on our campus in addition to our concert series, including performance opportunities for amateur and professional musicians alike. The award-winning Mendelssohn Chorale, composed of skilled choral musicians from the greater Rockford area, is the official chorus of the Rockford Symphony Orchestra. The Art Song Project meets monthly at Emerson House to perform art songs- poetry set to music. Piano lovers can join the Piano Performance Group, which meets once a month to perform solo and duet repertoire on our magnificent 9′ Steinway pianos in Mendelssohn Hall. Youth opportunities opportunities at MPAC include the Chandler Starr Miller Scholarship Competition, Young Musicians Series, Masterclasses, and Educational Outreach Events.
Community Arts Partners: MPAC’s campus is home to a number of arts partners who help promote the arts and develop a growing understanding of the importance in our lives and community.
