On Friday, October 21st, 2017 we lost one of our brightest Suns,
the incredible Steven Karlin.
For 15 years, Steven was a huge part of the MTKC family. He started performing on-stage with us in 2003 and continued to perform all the way through high school. He came back as a camp counselor for many years and eventually started using his incredible music skills to play piano for rehearsals and performances. He also continued to sing and participate in many Alumni Shows over the years.
What a wonderful, kind, loyal, talented, open-hearted boy who was so true to himself.
We are so proud to call you ours and we miss you so much.
Thank you for all the time and love you gave so freely.
We love you dearly and always will....

* The Karlin Family has requested that people make donations to MTKC in lieu of flowers. Because Steven had such an immense impact on the music for MTKC shows, we are excited to announce that we are raising money to build a full-size pit for our orchestra in our new theater. The digging of the orchestra pit alone costs $100,000 so we need alumni, students, family and friends to come together for this memorial. All proceeds from the Alumni Show and T-shirt sales will go towards "Steven's Pit" as well.
Please consider making a generous donation so his musical contributions can be forever remembered and recognized.
