Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) is so proud to be the home of a new piano lab that was created to serve students of all ages in a group setting. Though MCA has provided private piano lessons for many years this new state-of-the-art electronic lab allows piano instruction in a unique way that allows students to work together and independently while being instructed by a professional teaching artist.

Singers in Winona and the surrounding areas are invited to join the Valéncia Chorale, a new adult community choir for mixed voices under the direction of Dr. Patrick O’Shea. The Valéncia Chorale will rehearse at the Valéncia Arts Center, which houses the Minnesota Conservatory of the Arts, and will explore repertoire of a variety of styles and periods. No audition is necessary to register, but the director will want to hear all singers individually at some point to ensure proper sectional placement. High school-age singers (14-18) may register with the consent of the director. Rehearsals will be on Thursday evenings from 7:15 to 8:45 p.m. in the Valencia Arts Center Recital Hall.read more

The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is incredible! My children have truly enjoyed being part of the dance-arts community at MCA. The instructors are skilled artists whose passion shows through as they deliver a developmentally-appropriate curriculum in a child-centered and caring way. All families and community members are always welcome at MCA and encouraged to be part of the arts in Winona. Thank you MCA and MCA staff and volunteers.
The MCA combos help me step out of my comfort zone and be with people outside my school. And I got to play a new instrument. There is no pressure to be awesome, just do the best you can.
While attending the Winona Arts Camp I learned that I wasn’t shy after all!
