MCCO, founded in 2015, is a 501(c)(3) organization that exists for the purpose of fostering and encouraging the appreciation of music in all its various forms. It seeks to raise the common standard of musical education and enjoyment as well as provide exceptional performances for a broad and diverse public throughout the Tennessee Valley. MCCO offers a much needed outlet for those that are experienced players who enjoy playing and wish to foster appreciation for orchestral arts.
MCCO's vision is to enrich community life by providing an exceptional musical program that educates, entertains, and enhances lives in Madison. The orchestra reaches the community through a variety of performances each year by alternating classical concert series with more contemporary, pop series.
Lasting friendships will be formed and renewed during each season's programs on the common ground discovered through dedication to the goals and purposes of MCCO. The artistic leadership, musicians, regional, and governing board members will work with integrity to care for and nurture creativity, collegiality, and excellence through high quality music and educational performances.
