|Published: 13th March 2012 18:02|
Rehearsals have begun for this year's series of summer concerts being undertaken by the Music Makers of Milton Keynes, but it's not too late if you want to join them.
Founded in 1985, MMMK is now a registered charity and is open to all who wish to sing - without audition! You could be singing in several concerts taking place around Milton Keynes.
One of the best ways for people to express their creativity, meet new friends and develop a range of skills is to join in with a group of singers, perhaps join a choir. Singing is for everyone to take part in and enjoy, whatever their background and ability.
Music has the ability to lift the spirits & physical wellbeing of individuals, anyone can do it - within the family or a local community. Singing acts as a "mega-vitamin for the brain" as it generates a feel-good factor with its' incredible endorphin rush.
It has become increasingly popular to take part in singing as people discover for the first time, or rediscover, the joys of anything from nostalgic popular songs or hymns to classic and pop songs.
Musical Director Andrew Knight described the singing repertoire as fun, varied and challenging, with everything from Madrigals to Musicals, Beethoven to Beatles and Baroque to Rock!
Andrew believes music is a healthy and lovely activity for all ages and is keen to see new people feel the benefit of singing and the joy it brings.
With that thought in mind, Dianna Moylan, Chair of MMMK is appealing for new adult singers of all abilities to come and join them. "We aim to perform enjoyable, accessible music and bring out the best in each singer, in popular concerts that audience's love. No one has to sing by themselves, that's the whole point in being in a choir," she assures.
Rehearsals are held on Thursdays, 7.30 - 9.30 pm at the Children's Centre, London Road, Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes, MK11 1JQ.
Do come and sing with us, it is easy to get involved! Just call (01908) 310742 to arrange your free introductory session or ask about joining.
