Amy Honka & Mishawn Yardley Perform W/ EVMCO

Two of INSPIRE’s own members, Amy Honka (on the flute) & Mishawn Yardley (in the Grand Chorus) sang with the incredible East Valley Millennial Choir & Orchestra for three incredible performance in two nights. In fact, the choir sold out their two originally planned performances so quickly they added a third performance!

If you haven’t had a chance to experience this incredible choir you should mark your calendar’s now for their next performance. We are so proud of our INSPIRE members as they continue to share their amazing musical abilities!

ALL AGES • ALL FAITHS • ONE VOICE

Millennial Choirs & Orchestras, a performing force of over 2,000 participants, and growing. From its inception in 2007, MCO has become one of the largest organizations of its kind in the world, offering superb music training and professional performance opportunities to musicians of all ages and abilities.

MCO was founded for the purpose of teaching and encouraging excellence in quality sacred and classical music. Its primary purpose is to fulfill the need for more refined music education not only among the Mormons, but also among members of all faiths. MCO provides an invaluable learning environment whereby children, youth, and adults may associate and develop talents with those who maintain upstanding values, while instilling in its participants a deep love for sacred and classical music. The organization is made up of hundreds of volunteers who represent a variety of faiths.

REHEARSALS & PERFORMANCES

MCO currently rehearses in two locations: Arizona’s East Valley, and Orange County, California. In March 2013, MCO announced its third location will open in Dallas, Texas.  MCO locales house seven performance ensembles, including non-auditioned choirs for children and youth ages 4-18, and auditioned adult choirs and symphony orchestras. All ensembles have one rehearsal each week, and perform regularly in the finest concert halls in their communities. These concerts unify audiences with inspiring, refined sacred and classical music.
