"Being a part of the MNU choirs has been a life changing experience. Whether we are singing on the stage of Bell, at a 20 member church in a town we've never heard of or on the steps of the Thomas Jefferson memorial in Washington D.C, each performance is the road trip of a lifetime."
“It is a pleasure to work with the talented and committed students that we have at MNU. The future of music is bright!”
