What our charities have said about our Musica Charity Choir MK:
How much we enjoyed the Choir’s visit to Little Houghton eighteen months ago! Now – what about your second visit last Saturday evening? Once again, I was privileged to hear so many of the comments as people left the church, but this time I find it much harder to pass on all that was said, so full of appreciation was it.
Perhaps the thing that stood out most was the question ‘when is the next one?’……..
…. I am glad to have this opportunity to send you and all members of the choir our most grateful thanks, with our best wishes for your continued success in the future. You will be delighted to hear that the evening at Little Houghton raised the magnificent sum of £2042.80, and that the attendance numbered a little over 160.
Most Sincerely, John Ford, for Little Houghton Church.December 2018:
Dear Ken and all the talented singers of the Choir
On behalf of all the Trustees and the beneficiaries of the HOMSA Charity, I write to say a sincere thank you to you and your gifted singers. The Dec. 2018 Christmas Musical Concert at St Mary’s Church in Bletchley raised just under £3000 with over 150 persons attending an event that was simply magical. It set the mood of the folk in the correct festive spirit with audience participation, fun, excitement and jollity while remaining very musically competent and professional. This is a near impossible combination of talent to achieve, but your versatile choir simply did it! There was appreciation from all those attending as expressed by their whole hearted applauses. The Musica Charity Choir and its precursor Andante have voluntarily sung for almost 15 years at our Christmas events regularly also for a few Summer events. Through your efforts we have raised in the region of £40,000 for the worthy charitable causes we have been engaged with in bringing hope and comfort to the disadvantaged persons in Sri Lanka and Southern India. For giving of your time and talent free for the Charity we as Trustees express our sincere gratitude and wish each member of the Choir the very best as they use their gifting for the betterment of others.
Yours sincerely, Revd Dr Sam Muthuveloe.
The concert on Saturday was brilliant and much appreciated. Ken was very good engaging the audience when he introduces the pieces, as well as conducting. You sang like angels. There were such moving songs, very beautiful. The solos were lovely. (Oak Tree Court – Deaf children’s charity)
I do wish to thank the choir for a truly splendid evening … the evening with you stood out as especially enjoyable for everyone. (Oaktree Court, Willen, for Hope Outreach UK, National Deaf Society & Sense, Milton Keynes)
What a wonderful evening. What music. What voices. What joy. … on behalf of everyone there I say a huge THANK YOU. I would not have missed it for the world. (St Mary’s Little Houghton, Northants)
I was able to stand in the Church porch afterwards and to hear the many comments as people left, and they were without exception fulsome in their appreciation … in addition to the pleasure that you gave to that large audience, the evening raised £1,160 for Church funds. Thank you all for giving us such a happy, successful and memorable evening. (Little Houghton Church treasurer, Northants)
