Mid-Missouri Community Orchestra (MMCO)

The Mid-Missouri Community Orchestra (MMCO) provides an informal, positive, and supportive community orchestra experience for adults of any level of experience.  String players, wind players, and percussionists are welcome.  The orchestra has been performing since the early 2000s, first under the direction of Pamela Gibb and later with Jeanne Lambson. The group is now part of MU's Community Music Program.

Due to covid-19, the MMCO will not be meeting during the Fall '20 semester. This website will be updated once a decision has been made for Spring '21. 

 

Instruction

The MMCO orchestra is composed of musicians who began learning their instruments as adults and musicians who learned earlier in life and are looking for a relaxed, informal orchestra experience.  It includes both string, wind and percussion instruments.
 
The group rehearses 7-8:30 p.m. Monday evenings, with a performance at the end of each semester.  
 
Rehearsal location:
Spring 2020: Sinquefield Music Center (SMC 130)
