Music Community Resources (MCR) is an inclusive 501C-3 non-profit organization dedicated to nurture and promote live music in our community.


MCR values the importance of live music in our culture and works to preserve and nurture the cultural tradition of live music events.  This is accomplished by expanding performance opportunities for musicians, community education through audience experience, teaching the etiquette of live performance to young musicians, organizing benefit concerts, bringing live music to nursing homes, hospitals, and shelters, and similar activities promoting the performance of music.  The organization also provides artist development for young and emerging musicians.

"Music is well said to be the speech of angels."

Thomas Carlyle 1795 - 1881
