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 complete the 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 been blessed by having produced some of the finest musicians in the state. Year in, year out, MCI has ranked at the top in chorus, jazz band, and concert band competitions. This has allowed us to take many of our students out of state and show the rest of the country “how it’s done in Central Maine.”
