Our Community Engagement branch focuses on bringing performing arts education to learners of all ages and abilities throughout the area.

Metropolis Performing Arts Centre is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.

General Description: Metropolis seeks a knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic instructor to teach and share the joy of singing with Crescendo Chorus. Crescendo brings adults ages 55+ together to make music and build friendships through group singing.
