Our music ministry at Milton Keynes City Church began in 1992 when our Chamber Choir and Orchestra formed to perform major choral and operatic excerpts and raised over £5000 for a Romanian charity. Since then both choir and orchestra have gone from strength to strength performing a wide range of repertoire. Our most recent venture was a highly successful performance of Verdi Requiem. We are also home to a church choir, children's choir and a cappella choir (see 'getting involved' for more information). Past performances have included vocal and instrumental duets and ensembles, jazz bands, brass bands, choirs (including The Sixteen and the Clerks) in evening and lunchtime recitals. Our Musical Director, Adrian Boynton gives illustrated talks in his Musical Milestones and Exploring Music series covering composers of plainsong to present day works.
We aim to:
- Give a platform to local young musicians
- Support and encourage musical activities in and around Milton Keynes
- Encourage high standards
- Extend Cornerstone's musical outreach by promoting concerts, recitals and talks
