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. 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 Community Music @ Mizzou.
*Fall '22 registration will remain open for string players only.
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. The MMCO is currently only open to string players.
