There is an amazing choir group that has been growing in the American West called the Millenial Choirs and Orchestra (MCO), and they are defined by their and celebration of faith and strict membership requirements. In a time where America routinely demands less and less of it's youth, MCO requires its members to adhere to a strict code of conduct, which they discussed in an interview with Glenn on TheBlaze TV.
"We want them to represent Millennial Choirs & Orchestras in a positive way, and we want them to be dignified human beings when they’re participating in MCO. It goes beyond. I think if we’re creating this music together, we all have to be trying to be good people together and create some sort of unity that way," Brandon Stewart, Dean and Founding Musical Director, said.
According to the code of conduct, members are supposed to be respectful and are not supposed to say unkind things in person or online. Rehearsals are often described as "intense", because the members are all expected to perform at the highest possible level.
"I think that the reason that the intensity works is because there is the faith element and the sacred music element, so we’re creating excellence, but at the same time people are feeling something," Stewart said.
The Millennial Choir Orchestra will be featured in a two-part special on TheBlaze TV. Part 1 of The Performance will air at 8pm ET on December 17th, with Part 2 airing on Wednesday December 18th.
