Changing the World Through Music

With a mission to sing as a community for the community, Midcoast Community Chorus (MCC) grew from a small UU church’s music outreach program into a 140 voice non -auditioned multi-generational community chorus. With the belief that “When we sing we change who we are, when we change who we are we change the world” MCC performs annual benefit concerts that raise awareness and funds for local non-profit organizations addressing social injustices and community needs. Performing to consistently sold-out audiences, MCC has donated over $75,000 to these worthy organizations since its founding in 2008.

Using this story as a springboard and learning songs justice peace, hope and transformation, we will explore ways that music offers powerful pathways for creating community and working with social justice issues in our churches and local communities.

All who attend this workshop will be invited to sing the songs we learn in the Sunday morning worship service at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington.
