MCI's Music Department prepares students to be lifelong learners and lovers of music. Our musicians perform on the local, state, and national stage. Concerts, festivals, exchanges, and competitions fill the year. Courses in music theory, composition, arranging, history, and piano round out our offerings.
Performing ensembles include Concert Band, Concert Choir, Chamber Choir (by audition), Vocal Jazz Ensemble (by audition), Instrumental Jazz Ensemble I, Instrumental Jazz Ensemble II (by audition), Jazz Combo (by audition) and Pep Band.
Students who enroll in the music program may choose or audition for a variety of options, which include Concert Choir; Vocal Jazz Ensemble; Concert Band; and Jazz Ensemble.
MCI has produced some of the finest musicians in the state. Every year, MCI has ranked at the top in chorus, jazz band, and concert band competitions. This has allowed us to show the rest of the country “how it’s done in central Maine.”
