The Morning Music Club (MMC) was established on January 8, 1924 by a group of professional women musicians in the Nyack area. MMC serves the community culturally, through its Concert Series; educationally, through its Music Scholarship Awards; and charitably; through its Outreach Program. Today, MMC attracts both men and women as members from Rockland and adjacent counties, and includes music lovers and patrons as well as musicians.
