MCS Alums Perform as US Ambassadors in Russia

MCS alums Marc Day and Jessica Beebe are performing Maximillian Steinberg’s Passion in Russia. The composition was recently discovered in New York after being hidden for over 50 years. The woman who discovered the hidden gems in the wake of her father's passing, gave the manuscripts to Steven Fox, Artistic Director and Conductor of The Clarion Choir. After the choir recorded the piece, the U.S. State Department sent the Choir to St. Petersburg and Moscow to perform it as a gift from the United States to Russia.

MCS Artist Brings Home Multiple Awards

Congratulations to MCS Eighth Grader, Zosia Weglarz, as the recent recipient of two awards for her watercolor entry titled “Sunflowers” in the 2016 Greater Avenues Street Fair. Weglarz received the most votes in the People’s Choice Award category, and she was awarded the first place ribbon in the 10-14 year old category by the street fair “professional judges.”
“Zosia is that student who puts the most time and thought into her art projects,” says Choir School Art Teacher, Erin Mattes. “It is obvious that she wants to create meaningful pieces and each project is very special to her. I get so much satisfaction from seeing the creativity that the students bring to all the different projects we do at the Choir School, and I have certainly enjoyed watching Zosia express and develop her passion and talents as an artist. I was not surprised to hear that she won these awards.”
