Art Song Project
Art Song is like a book club for singers: find, prepare, and share songs with others!
To Help Us Continue Presenting Quality Musical Experiences!
In addition to our concerts, MPAC hosts many performance and educational opportunities. Groups for both youth and adults, offer ways in which artists can connect with peers and develop their crafts.
The Art Song Project,for vocalists, meets to perform poetry set to music. Piano lovers can join the Piano Performance Group, which meets once a month to perform repertoire on our magnificent Steinway pianos.
MPAC could not operate without its generous supporters! There are many ways to support MPAC:
