About Us

The Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh (MCP), the region’s premiere symphonic chorus and oldest continuously performing arts organization at 114 years young, occupies a unique position in the Greater Pittsburgh arts landscape: it is an independent arts organization that simultaneously has been the choral partner of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) for almost 100 years—a signature accomplishment and a core part of MCP’s identity, and it is a professional chorus whose artists are primarily amateur singers. Through recordings, performances with the PSO heard over Public Radio International (PRI), and innovative programming such as its composer in residence program and the new on-line Global Choral Traditions, MCP’s impact can be felt on the regional cultural landscape and beyond.
