Bournemouth Community Choir
Make new friends, find a new hobby & be part of a real community when you sing with our Bournemouth choir. Help us raise £1 million for charity while singing your heart out! We have lots of unique events to raise money for charity where you can put a wig on, dress in costumes and have fun. No audition needed!
"Everyone is really friendly the choirmaster is amazing and learning to sing brilliant songs - best bit will be fundraising for some excellent causes"
- Denise Lagdon
No previous musical experience needed
If you’ve never sung before or played any instruments, don’t worry! We can teach you how to sing with our professional, trained musicians. We’ll make sure you improve your singing while enjoying yourself every week.
We know it can be scary to sing in front of people so that’s why we’ll never make you sing on your own. You’ll always sing in groups, with friendly people supporting you.
Escape your day-to-day
With increasing loneliness and anxiety, you can find a safe space to be yourself & connect with others at our choir. Get support from like-minded people who genuinely care about you and find yourself again.
"Great collaboration of like-minded people who enjoy singing and it’s a place to have fun forget your troubles and share the joy of music - but in particular the choir host who is very talented and engaging and super funny!"
- Christine Clarke

About the Bournemouth choir group
The Bournemouth Choir are very friendly and welcoming. We’re a lovely group of singers with a great sense of humour. It's a busy rehearsal room with a buzzing atmosphere so it's the perfect place to get into choir singing. You’ll be very well looked after, surrounded by kind people.
"I’d recommend everything... sharing our love of music with each other, making new friends and feeling part of something rather special. Raising money is always a great thing to do, too"
- Barbara Holloway

"I joined Buskerteers Choir for a confidence boost, to meet new people and to give myself something to do of an evening for 'me' time. Best decision I've made in a very long time."
