Music from Our Culture (MOC)

Music from Our Culture (MOC) is an emerging professional children’s music group. Oneida community children learn about their ancient tribal music and Indian hymnal music heard in the Oneida culture in the MOC music group. The goal of MOC is to develop the Oneida Youth Singers to become a professional childrens choir. The MOC program is for youth ages 7 to 15, that consists of Oneida Earth Songs, Oneida hymns, and some contemporary music. This gives youth a small glimpse of the different cultural aspects that are present in the Oneida Nation community. In this video, Beth Bashara talks about how the MOC program started. calendar
