Mission Statement

The purpose of Hearts in the Arts is to provide financial support to Visual and Performing Arts students, programs, performances, and travel opportunities.

Thank you for supporting the Arts at MCC!

As we anticipate another season of live performances at McLennan Theatre and Music, we are again faced with uncertainty shaped by the pandemic. As before, we remain determined that “The Show Must Go On,” ensuring that students continue to hone their skills through rigorous instruction, practice, and performances to persist in their educational journeys. And, we will be there to cheer them on!  Not a week goes by that we don’t hear about a former arts student who is achieving big things in their career as a performer, creator, or teacher!  Your support will ensure the next generation of performers can achieve success. 

Please consider becoming a member of the MCC Foundation’s Hearts in the Arts (HIA) affinity group that supports all the visual and performing arts at McLennan. As a 2021-2022 Hearts in the Arts member, you will enjoy a full selection of arts opportunities and tickets to all theatre, opera, and Steinway performances! Depending on your level of sponsorship, your HIA membership may also include top billing as a presenting sponsor of the February 24, 2022 Hearts in the Arts Gala, featuring the campy, slightly creepy, but thoroughly hummable musical, Little Shop of Horrors!

Hearts in the Arts provides scholarships, arts equipment, master classes, and emergency grants to students through the MCC Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that depends on community support to enrich the academic and cultural life of Central Texas. Thank you for fulfilling that mission through your support of the arts at McLennan in 2020-2021. We’ll see you at the show!
