7:15–8:00—Melodia Men and Women
The success of the Melodia Choir is due to the strong choral programs in the South Central Minnesota area that send skilled choral singers to MCC. Melodia singers represent high school choral programs from Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton, Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial, Loyola, Mankato East, Mankato West, Maple River, St. Peter and Waseca. Melodia also participates in an annual winter retreat and travels with the MCC Concert Choir in nationwide tours every four years.
Men and Women
The Melodia Choir has been in existence since 2000. The choir began as a small high school women’s ensemble and is now the largest of the five MCC choirs. Melodia functions as three choirs; high school men’s, women’s, and a mixed choir. Each choir rehearses for a half hour per week. Because students come from the greater Mankato region, members have developed strong bonds with friends from many school districts.
