MKCC Stratford 2013

A contingent at the Stratford-upon-Avon Choir Festival 2013

Let it Snow

Due to heavy snow, our "Let it Snow" Concert, in aid of the Climb Your Mountain Charity had to be time shifted (successfully) from December 2010 to January 201l. It helped raise over £1,100.

"The performance of your choir was brilliant and you all stole the show. One young girl standing next to me in the audience said that she had not seen anything so wonderful and when she closed her eyes and listened to the choir she felt she was in heaven".

We performed at the Diverse Arts Live Event at the MK Theatre 2011

MKCC Choir and Checque

We presented a cheque for £1,088 to Willen Hospice after our Midsummer Voices concert in July 2012 Willen Thank You Letter and Certificate. In December Santander doubled this to a total of £2,176 with a matching contribution.

MKCC was established in 2008. It is a choir open to anyone who loves singing. There is no audition and all are welcome. We meet on Tuesday evenings 7.45 – 9.45pm, in term-time, in Stantonbury.
There is now a waiting list for all choir sections. We suggest that prospective new singers come and sing with us for an evening and see if you like our choir. If you do, then give your name to the membership secretary who can be found signing in the regular choir members.
The Milton Keynes Community Choir is not for profit and entirely run by volunteers. All our concerts aim to raise funds for charities which are nominated and voted for by the choir.
