Monterey Peninsula Voices is a community, no audition chorus, that was founded over 60 years ago for all interested singers in the Monterey Peninsula. Our post- pandemic goal was to engage the larger arts community with multi-media performances in Spring 2021; and subsequently, broaden outreach to high school youth in the musical arts, with our Spring 2022 concerts. We continue the tradition of connecting with our audience through music with a light-hearted retro performance of decades of memorable music--- from that rite of passage, aka, the School Prom. Our inspiration originated with the high school singers who sang with MPV this past May, and their dedication to performing with our choir on the very same night as their prom. "MPV Prom Night for Everyone" will feature songs, dancing, and quite possibly, prom attire, to entertain our audience. MPV will also provide free and discounted tickets to broaden community outreach.
When I attended my first rehearsal at the persistent urging of a friend from a church choir, I was not sure if I was good enough to be in MPV. I was instantly welcomed warmly and made to feel right at home. Why am I still there 20 seasons later? It's not just the joy of singing; it's also the camaraderie and the wonderful friends I never would have known otherwise. MPV is not just a choir---it's a whole new family.
