While creating programming, MC3 will be proactive in identifying and including  projects that involve the voices of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)artists. MC3 displays the artist(s) at the forefront of their project(s). MC3’s default aesthetic is expansive, using inclusive artistic values that represent all of the cultural heritages within our community.

The Carr’s Beach Mural Project – Coming Spring 2021!

Comacell Brown (Cell Spitfire) & MC3

Carr and Sparrows Beach is a historical landmark in the Annapolis community which served as a space for Blacks to gather, perform and entertain from 1926-1974. Today, The Beach is rarely recognized for what it was, a defining moment in Annapolis’ history. MC3 is bringing together local Black artists to commemorate this staple at Park Place in Annapolis. We have chosen this location as it is owned by The Maryland Cultural and Conference Center, which will serve as a version of Carr and Sparrows Beach, bringing together all communities and offering accessible, equitable and dynamic arts programming for the greater Annapolis region.

April 23 & 24, 2021 | Doors 8pm, Show 8:30pm

The Maryland Cultural & Conference Center (MC3) is celebrating Spring at Park Place in Annapolis with Project Disco! This Silent Disco + Light Show will feature well-known Maryland based DJs “DJ Griff” (@dj_griff_) and “ALWZ SNNY” (@alwzsnny). The interactive lighting and projections show has been developed by MFA students within The University of Maryland Lighting Department, led by renowned Director and Multimedia Designer Jared Mezzocchi.

Past Programs
  • 2020: STILL STANDING with Orange Grove Dance

    For four evenings in November of 2020 MC3’s StageOne was transformed by Orange Grove Dance (“OGD”) into a live, site-specific, socially-distanced performance, Still Standing. Featuring a vivid light installation of 150 wireless lighting units that gently reflected the adjacent Annapolis National Cemetery, dancers and light served as a reminder of the importance of casting our lights together during times of darkness. With the audience viewing from MTPA’s Veterans Overlook, OGD brought their trademark virtuosic athleticism and the alluring music of Composer Dylan Glatthorn to this surreal luminescent landscape designed by acclaimed Lighting Designer Peter Leibold.

  • 2019: MTPA Commissions 2X Grammy Winning Pianist, Peter Kater for Private Concert

    Peter Kater entertained the sell-out crowd of over 75 people for over an hour, using his wit and charm to complement his skillful mastery of his music. As he played several selections from his album, “Wings of Sound,” he encouraged members of the audience to lie down beneath the piano to experience the full impact of the music, and many took advantage of the unique opportunity.
