Other Performing Arts

Other Regional Performing Arts Organizations

The Mid-Columbia Symphony is one of several performing arts organizations that have long served the Tri-Cities and the mid-Columbia region. Please support these organizations and take advantage of the performing arts in our area.

We recommend all of these:

The Mid-Columbia Mastersingers

We transform lives through the power of choral music.

Each season, the Mastersingers offer a series of four to five sets of concerts throughout the year. Performers include a variety of our many choral groups, and they often collaborate with other musical groups and organizations, including the Mid-Columbia Symphony.

The Mid-Columbia Ballet

Southeastern Washington’s premier performing dance company.

The Mid-Columbia Ballet (MCB) was incorporated in 1973 with the mission to foster and advance the art of ballet in its various forms. Although best known for its annual traditional holiday performances of The Nutcracker, the Company’s repertoire includes classical, neoclassical, and modern works by choreographers from throughout the U.S. In addition to its regular public performances, MCB annually reaches about 6,000 youth from our community through special performances and in-school lectures and demonstrations. MCB receives national recognition as a member of The Ballet Alliance, where each year the Company performs at the annual Festival. Many MCB dancers have received scholarships for further study and have gone on to professional dance careers, most notably, former Pacific Northwest Ballet principal, Patricia Barker.

Mid-Columbia Musical Theater

Your Tri-Cities community theatre, bringing live musical theatre to the Mid-Columbia region since 1948

Mid-Columbia Musical Theatre (MCMT) is a nonprofit corporation whose mission is to produce and stage amateur theatrical productions and related recreational, educational, and public service activities. The company began as Richland Light Opera Company in 1948 with the dream of Jack Quinn, Mina, and Blake Miller, and Jeanne Bowen to bring a production of The Mikado and No, No, Nanette to Richland. The company transitioned from light opera to musical theatre with its 1953 production of No, No, Nanette. As MCMT continues to grow, we have selected more modern shows to add to our repertoire while keeping musical theatre classics and light operas in our show rotation.
