Programs and Workshops
The Macomb Center is home to several fine show choir programs for students in middle school, high school and college. Through participation in the Macomb Center's Show Choir programs, students learn the art of musical theater. A combination of singing, acting and choreographed movement combined to create the necessary skill set for a Broadway-style performance. Opportunities abound for singers to not only perform at numerous functions, but to learn the craft from professional vocal clinicians and choreographers. While pursuing their musical interest, students gain self-esteem, enhance their performance experience and have the opportunity to develop lifelong friendships. In addition, they will gain the experience of performing on a professional stage at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts.
