Message from the President
The Mississippi Federation of Music Clubs is a member of the National Federation of Music Clubs, the largest nonprofit organization in America that promotes and supports American music, performers, and music education.
Welcome to the official website of the Mississippi Federation of Music Clubs! (MFMC). It is my pleasure to serve as the 53rd President of MFMC. I joined The MacDowell Music Club of Jackson in 1998, as a vocalist. I have served in many capacities through my years in Federation, including State President for three terms and National Arts Advocacy Chair. The Mississippi Federation of Music Clubs was founded and became affiliated with the National Federation of Music Clubs in 1916.
Our purpose is to unite music clubs and other musical organizations and individuals for training and development and to maintain high musical standards throughout the State of Mississippi. MFMC has a place for all musical backgrounds, whether you are an amateur or professional musician. Maybe you are a retired music teacher or new music teacher. We even have a place for our supportive parents! I hope you enjoy exploring our website and seeing all we have to offer, from our programs to our many musical clubs.
“Aim higher and consider yourselves capable of great things.” “Music exalts each joy, allays each grief.” “Aid instead of criticizing.” These are a few examples of the mottos of our local music clubs in Mississippi. If you are interested in joining our MFMC family, please see our Contact page. Thank you so much for visiting the website of the Mississippi Federation of Music Clubs!
