City choir encourages men to sing

Milton Keynes Community Choir is on the lookout for new members this autumn.

The choir is specifically looking for men, who have a burning desire to sing and experience the ‘lift’ that communal singing can give, to join its tenor and bass sections.

Milton Keynes Community Choir has come from humble beginnings. This mixed voice group grew out of a small singing course five years ago and now has around 100 members.

It embraces the spirit of singing with fun for all and with Musical Director, Craig McLeish, at the helm enjoys singing a wide ranging repertoire from pop, world music, folk and musical theatre to classical.

The choir meets to sing weekly during term-time at Stantonbury Church and has a professional attitude towards its sound. It produces two concerts each year, the proceeds of which go to charity.

The choir can occasionally be heard at other local events, or singing in the city centre to raise funds for the aid of national or international emergencies.

It is so successful that it has a current waiting list for entry of sopranos and altos, but would like to expand its tenor and bass sections so is welcoming men along in the autumn to try it out and see if it’s for them.
