Middlesex Hospital Vocal Chords Welcome a New Musical Director

Submitted by Kate Porch, MHVC Publicity Committee.

The MIDDLESEX HOSPITAL VOCAL CHORDS (MHVC) is proud to announce our new Musical Director, Samuel Tucker, effective January 1, 2022.  Sam brings a wealth of musical knowledge and expertise to our 32 year old chorus.  “I am so excited to be the new Musical Director for MHVC!” said Samuel.  “My overall philosophy of music is that it should bring connection, beauty, healing, and joy to our lives.  Given what we have been through in the last couple of years, I feel that mission is more important than ever.  Bringing these things to the public, and to each other, can make a huge difference.  I look forward to sharing some wonderful music with my new musical family.”
