MCA announces fall registration open house

WINONA, Minn. — The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts will host its fall registration open house from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5, at the Valéncia Arts Center, located at 1164 W. 10th St.

The public is welcome to visit the facility, tour the studios and classrooms, and meet the Conservatory’s talented instructors and staff. The dance attire boutique will be open, and staff will assist with fittings and take orders for all of the dance classes.

Be the first to register for the Fall Semester I classes in person. Anyone interested in taking private music lessons is invited to see, hear and try out specific instruments.

Meet and welcome the new managing director and administrative assistant, speak with Friends of the MCA to learn more about volunteer opportunities, and meet others who love the arts.

Class days, times, and tuition vary. Financial need-based scholarships are available. For a brochure and a complete listing, visit, e-mail, “like” them on Facbebook, or call (507) 453-5500. Interested students may register online, by mail, or in person at MCA’s Valéncia Arts Center.

This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008. The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is an affiliate program of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.
