What our charities have said about our Musica Charity Choir MK:

Saturday 21st October 2022, St Lawrence , Towcester:

St. Lawrence were so thrilled with Musica’s gift to us on Saturday.  We all really enjoyed being comforted, consoled, laugh, and be  encouraged to sing and share the joy of music.  I know you made many fans.  Please do thank the choir and Ed so very much for a wonderful evening.  The soloists were superb and the choir and Ed’s pieces were as ever stupendous.
 
Thankyou all enormously.
 
I much look forward to discussing the carol concert in due course and thank you for your generosity and talent.”

Saturday 23rd July 2022, The Mead Centre, Newport Pagnell:

“……the overwhelming response to the performance was one of sheer admiration for the wonderful performance and professionalism from the choir.
Please extend our thanks to Ken, Ed and all the singers for a super evening. There were quite a few “first timers” attending a Musica event and we have had numerous inquiries as to “when is the next one?”
P., event organiser.
Saturday 26th June 2022, St Andrew’s Lower Harlestone:
Thank you to you and all the choir for such a wonderful evening. Everyone I have spoken to really enjoyed the music and I have had some lovely ‘feedback’ emails.
I have had a quick count and we appear to have made just over £700 profit which is marvellous. But it is not always about the money, ( useful as it will be), it was so nice to be able to get together again, as a village, after ‘lockdown’.
Hope to see and hear you all again soon
Thank you once again.  B. Event organiser.
 
Saturday 21st May 2022, St Lawrence Broughton testimonial: 
The long awaited return of “Musica MK Choir” to St Lawrence Church in Broughton took place in May 2022 and as we expected they did not disappoint. This Choir’s love of singing comes across loud and clear, their enthusiasm and love of music is infectious and a joy to watch and all done for the benefit of charity. Everyone left the Church with a smile on their face and feeling positive about getting out again to hear live music. We cannot thank them enough.

23 April 2019, Church Brampton:
Thank you so much for last night’s concert which was absolutely delightful – something for everyone and such a high standard.  Church this morning was all talk about it and how much we had enjoyed it.  You and your choral friends, your conductor and, of course, your accompanist are to be congratulated and thanked most sincerely.  A wonderful night out and a wonderful £745 for the Church Funds. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 
 
16th April 2019, Little Houghton: Article in the Parish Council magazine.
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.

Thank you,
Yours sincerely, Revd Dr Sam Muthuveloe.

General Secretary

 
I just wanted to send you huge thanks to Musica Charity Choir MK for leading us so magnificently at the St J A service in St Lawrence. The choir were fantastic and much appreciated by everyone. I am so grateful too for your help in arranging the right balance of congregational singing and choir pieces and for the general flow. Revd. Lulu Pelly, Tove Benefice, Towcester 
 
Thank you so much for coming in and singing for our Customers at Christmas. Your choir was fantastic, one of the best we have had and makes a real difference to creating a warm welcome to our Customers.  (Store Manager, Waitrose, Oakgrove, Milton Keynes)

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)

Everyone so enjoyed your concert  yesterday evening. Thank you so much. We loved the varied programme, exactly the right mix of music to suit all tastes. All introduced in an informative and light hearted way
PLEASE say you will come again.  It would be lovely to do something similar in a couple of year’s time.
I don’t suppose you are taking bookings for 2020 yet !!    but could we please go in the waiting list.
Very Best Wishes to you all, if you are keeping statistics we were able to add approx. £500 to our window restoration fund here. (St Andrew’s Church, Harleston)
