The Moorpark College Choral and Vocal program (MCCV) offers a diverse selection of courses and performance opportunities to train both the amateur eager to learn new skills, and the next generation of professional vocal musicians.
Students in the Music Major (Voice) program have the opportunity to thrive in a cross-collaborative environment by participating in large-scale choral/orchestral masterworks, small ensembles, vocal techniques classes, individual applied instruction, and classroom learning.
The Choral & Vocal Program believes that music is a universal language that connects all walks of life. This belief is fostered in regular domestic and international travel. The ensembles have toured Italy where they performed at St. Peter's Basilica, Spain where they performed in renowned venues in Madrid and Córdoba, and Central Europe where they performed at Matthias Church in Budapest. The ensembles have also traveled to cities such as San Diego, San Francisco, Redwood City, and Orlando for workshops and festivals.
Students in the Choral and Vocal program will learn from accomplished and award-winning faculty, dedicated staff, and their fellow colleagues. Upon successful completion of the AA-T in Music, many of our students have transferred to continue their advanced studies in music at renowned schools and conservatories across the country with substantial scholarships, to include: CSU Northridge, CSU Fullerton, CSU Long Beach, Oberlin Conservatory, Cleveland Institute of Music, Florida State University, UCLA, USC, UC Santa Barbara, and California Lutheran University. Moorpark College Choral & Vocal Program alumni can be seen in theatrical productions, recording studios, and concert halls across the country.
Our 2020 graduating class received a total of $197,000 in scholarship offers with 80% being first-generation college students.
