|The Music Company Orchestra is a 60-piece volunteer community orchestra performing for those who do not ordinarily hear orchestral music so they can experience the excitement of a live concert. In addition to playing at area retirement centers and nursing homes, we support local needs/charities|
Our annual Cabaret performed on April 8, 2017 at the Holiday Inn in Saratoga. Over 235 people had a great evening of food, silent auction and music with the theme of "On the Water".
On March 11, 2017 at the Clifton Park Library, the MCO played a children's concert - Catch the Wave.
The Orchestra played water related music to a full house of chldren of all ages. Our conductor explained the different instruments in the Orchestra, have each instrument play a few short measures. The program included part of Handel's Water Music, the Moldau by Smetana, Frozen from the movie of the same name, and the Grumpy Bear featuring Jerry on Bassoon. Finally, who will forget saying AAAAARHG! during Pirates of the Carribbean?
"Thanks so much for spectacular performance. It was absolutely wonderful and we are most grateful to all of you involved, both MCO and MVC, for spending their day making music to benefit UPH. I tend to be a little emotional but I was moved to tears several times yesterday by the beauty of the songs performed by both sets of musicians. This is a memory that I will cherish!"
