Cabaret 2018
Our 2018 Cabaret concert, held at the Holiday Inn - Saratoga, was a sold-out success.  We had our Dixieland Band, the Red Hot Rhythm Royals, play before dinner along with a very successful silent auction.  After a lovely dinner, the orchestra played.  The first half of the concert was more classical and included  pieces by Bizet, Massenet, Strauss and Wagner.
The second half of the concert was more pops and  included Sound of Music, Dances with Wolves, Fanfare for the Common Man and America the Beautiful.

SICM Fundriaiser
The MCO played a very successful concert on Sunday, November 12, 2017 to benefit SICM (Schenectady Inner City Ministry).   The concert of light classical music was well attended.  The MCO raised $1,210 for SICM and 440 lbs. of food donations, which will be distributed to individuals receiving groceries at the food pantry. 

"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!"
