Music Makers of Milton Keynes are a community choir with an emphasis on singing for fun ... mixing up a range of styles and sounds.
We are a welcoming bunch, with a range of backgrounds, ages, experience and a blend of multi-part harmonies - whether accompanied or a cappella.
We perform at local events, collaborate with other musical groups, take bookings for sessions and hold our own concerts.
MMMK are well underway with our 2017 repertoire - picking up some pieces from before, but also some new - so still a good time to join! See our Events Calendar to keep up to date. Our next engagement will be as invited guests of the Wolverton Light Orchestra - building on past successes, but in a new venue in Stony Stratford, rather than Newport Pagnell. All welcome - see poster -->
Most recently, a number of our members and friends supported the Wing Musicathon at the end of January. Prior to that, we concluded our Winter repertoire - having another joint concert with our good friends, Brackley Wind Ensemble. We were also out and about in local pubs, by invitation, starting up the festive spirit.

We are planning around our 2017 commitments; if you have an event or collaboration in mind, get in touch.
MMMK took part previously in Wolverton 'It's in the Square' and we have joined with other local choirs in a 'Springtime Singtime' and 'Big Sing for Willen' in Newport Pagnell. We have also worked with Radcliffe School and Wendy Kitching's Dancers for evenings of entertainment. Historically, we are also linked with Stantonbury Theatre, from earlier performances and musical theatre.
We welcome new members, without audition; entertaining Milton Keynes since 1985.
There's plenty to see on the site and lots of useful information. Find out about the events we have planned; a gallery and footage from recent performances, and some more information about the group and earlier history.
