MK Youth Choir 21st Birthday celebration concert Church of Christ the Cornerstone, Milton Keynes 7th July 2018 at 1:00pm Our big birthday celebration! Calling all past members: we are keen to get in touch with as many past members as possible to join us as we celebrate our 21st Birthday in concert on Saturday 7th July 2018 at 1pm. We would like past members to either perform or join the audience and for a social after the concert at Christ the Cornerstone in central MK. If you are a past member, or know a past member, please do get in touch. We are keen to have past members join and sing with us at the concert and would also like to hear if there is any particular repertoire you would like us to include – no promises as we have to balance our programme, but we would love to include some requests of music the choir has performed in the past if we can. MK Youth Choir was founded, by MK Chorale in 1997, with a grant from the National Lottery, and most of the initial members were children or grandchildren of Chorale members. During the 21 years hundreds of children have sung with the choir and many have gone on to enjoy singing professionally or in significant amateur roles. Our Musical Director, since 2010, is Craig McLeish who, as well as being Musical Director for Young Voices, has been heavily involved in musical contributions to the MK50 celebrations. We are hoping to put together a varied programme reflecting the wide variety of music (jazz, world, folk, pop and classical) the choir sings as well as a new piece composed for the occasion by Craig.

MK Youth Choir End of Summer Term concert Christchurch Stantonbury 11th July at 7-7:45pm (6:45 pm for a drink and cake before the concert) Come and enjoy an informal concert to celebrate the end of term. Anyone interested in joining the choir may come and observe the rehearsal from 6pm. As well as a celebration, this is a send-off for the singers who leave the choir this year, either because they are moving on with their education or moving away. We will also be bidding farewell to several parents who have provided enormous support to the choir. The choir will be singing some new music as well as favourites from the year. We hope to welcome many friends and parents to this concert as well as potential new choir members.
