Distinction at the MK Arts Festival!

Junction 14 came in second place in the Barbershop Chorus class in the Milton Keynes Festival of the Arts on 24th March.  Two of the quartets competing each had two members of our chorus.

Here are links to videos of our 2 songs:

My Baby

You Raise Me Up

Very well done to everyone who took part and to MK Acapella, who beat us by the slimmest of margins.

Ladies Who Sing – videos

On 19th November, we held our ‘Ladies Who Sing’ event — around 25 ladies joined us for the day to Learn You Raise Me Up.

The Junction 14 ladies had only been learning the song for a week or so — so it was quite new to everyone.

At the end of the day, we made a couple of videos. Click on the blue links to see the videos.

First, with some ladies using the sheet music.

Then everyone was persuaded to ‘throw away’ their music.

We were impressed with the results and several of the ladies who joined us for the day are now considering becoming members of Junction 14.
