2G MCS YOUTH CHOIR
Second Generation Manchester Choral Society (2G MCS) is an auditioned youth choir whose members represent six Manchester area middle and elementary schools. Established in the spring of 2012, through a collaboration between Manchester Choral Society (MCS) and Manchester Community Music School ( MCMS), 2G MCS provides a unique opportunity for exceptional young singers to perform a variety of choral works. Both MCS and MCMS are committed to educational outreach and to providing young students with experiences that promote a love of music. Directed by Krystal Morin, and accompanied by Elizabeth Blood, the choir meets at MCMS weekly.
