We have not one, but six community ensembles (including two bands), that provide free concerts throughout the Maplewood area each year.

Our 50 musicians are your neighbors, friends, and coworkers, and nearly all work outside the music industry. Musicians of all ages from high school to retired, mostly hobbyists, participate in MCM. Beyond the music, many of our musicians volunteer to work on the various behind the scenes activities required to run a non-profit organization.
Not only do we perform many free concerts throughout the year for audiences of all ages including our families, seniors, veterans and our youth, but we also partner with various local organizations such as our schools, town departments, libraries and business districts to provide music, demonstrate instruments and music styles, support benefit events and support other music-related programs.
