Outreach Program


The MCC Music Department Outreach Program, begun in 2005, offers a variety of concerts, lectures, demonstrations, master classes and workshops to students at Lowell High School, the Middlesex Charter School and other area schools. Presentations are given both at the schools and at the MCC Federal Building, Assembly Room and the Concert Hall of the Bedford Campus. These events afford high quality musical experiences, which go beyond the normal high school curriculum, and create a dynamic relationship between Middlesex Community College and the K-12 Fine Arts Pathway initiative. Programs are also given for LIRA, UMass Lowell’s arts program for retirees. 

The coordinator of this program until May 2016 was Johannah Segarich. Starting in September 2017 the coordinator is Orlando Cela.


Presentations have included:

        Vocal workshops

        MCC music faculty performances

        Informal lecture/recitals given by members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra

        Presentations/demonstrations by Cambodian musicians
