YOUR CHOIR LEADER
My name is Andy Ingram and I am the Buskerteers Choir Leader for Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Braintree and Clacton.
I've been a professional musician for many years. I've travelled all over the world performing at many different shows, corporate events and weddings.
I'm very excited to welcome you into our choir and to take you on an amazing musical journey. We'll be learning songs and performing on stage together, and trying to raise as much money for charity as we can with our busking and performing.
I can't wait to meet you!
"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
The Braintree Choir are very friendly and welcoming. They are great singers with a great sense of humour. It's a busy rehearsal room with a great atmosphere so it's the perfect place to get into choir singing. They will be kind to you and look after you.
