Thank you to our patrons and sponsors for a their support of the MCO and Grace Church’s ministries to the hungry and homeless since 2006.

The Maryland Concert Opera is no longer active.

The Maryland Concert Opera, in residence at the historic Grace United Church of Christ in downtown Frederick, Maryland from 2006 to 2015, was founded by Noel Lester. The goals of the company were twofold: to present high-quality operatic music in concert form to the Frederick community and to support Grace Church’s ministries to the hungry and homeless. Thanks to the generosity of our patrons, 50% of all ticket sales were donated to Grace Church’s social ministries. The MCO raised almost $10,000 for this purpose.
