Local Milton Keynes choir, Musica Charity Choir MK, is raising awareness of Milton Keynes Community Foundation’s Covid-19 MK Emergency Response Appeal by encouraging everyone to “Keep Smiling Through” in the lead up to VE Day 75 next Friday.
From their lounges, studies, and gardens, the choir has sung, recorded and filmed a virtual version of the wartime classic, “We’ll Meet Again” complete with new ‘lockdown lyrics’ and full harmonies.
As COVID-19 continues to impact our daily lives and affect our communities, there are amazing examples of communities pulling together and supporting one another, to try and help those who are vulnerable or in need. Milton Keynes Community Foundation has launched a Covid-19 MK Emergency Response Appeal to generate much needed funds to support local community groups delivering frontline services, such as food, shopping or general wellbeing.
Musica Charity Choir MK should have been performing VE-Day concerts in May. Instead members have come together online to perform “We’ll Meet Again” with new ‘lockdown lyrics’, to help raise awareness of the emergency appeal and encourage people to give what they can.
