THE MCC AMBASSADOR CHOIR
The MCC Ambassador Choir is a new and additional performance opportunity for all of our current choir members that would like to sing more in the community.
1. The MCC Ambassador Choir’s purpose is to broaden our musical presence in the Mankato community. MCC regularly gets requests to sing for our community at various events—sporting events, community gatherings, etc.—but due to the shorter timelines or the timing of the event it has been difficult to take advantage of these opportunities to showcase MCC talent and the value of choral singing. As are result, MCC is forming the Ambassador Choir, which will perform at events where our full choirs cannot perform.
2. Members of this choir are accepted from all MCC choirs with no audition. A registration form must be completed and a participation contract must be signed by parents and choir members. Participation in the Ambassador Choir is open to all, but does require a certain level of commitment. While MCC regular performances are scheduled at least 4 weeks in advance, singers in Ambassador Choir might have only a 2 week notice to sing at an event. We know not all performances will be possible for all of the Ambassador Singers, but in order for this choir to work, we must have a good turn out at each event. We want to present our best performance, so in the case that we do not have a large enough number of Ambassador Singers, the choir will not participate in the event.
3. There is no additional fee for Ambassador Choir members. The MCC Board of Directors sees this as a positive opportunity for our choir members and a great way to increase our presence in our community and does not want cost to be a factor in a family’s decision to have their child be an Ambassador Singer.
4. There will not be added rehearsals for the Ambassador Choir except for perhaps a possible extended rehearsal time on a Monday Night before or after a regular choir rehearsal. (Ex. 5:45 – 6:00 for Training, Intermediate and Youth or 6:00 – 7:10 for Concert and Melodia)
