First time singers welcome
If you don’t have previous singing experience, it’s okay! All you need is a can-do attitude and we can teach you the rest -if you can talk, you can sing. Our professional, trained musicians will be with you every step of the way to help you improve every week.
Rest assured, you won’t ever sing on your own - it can be scary and overwhelming. So that’s why you’ll always sing with friendly people who can support you.
Find yourself again
With increasing loneliness and anxiety, the pressures of life can be hard on you. Our members understand hardships very well and you can find genuine support amongst the choir group. Find yourself again with help from our choir.
"Not only do you come out of the session with such a BRILLIANT BUZZ but weeks and months later, when you think about it, you get the ‘Afterglow’ and you smile all over again."

About the Bury St Edmunds choir
Warm and compassionate are the words to describe our choir group at Bury St Edmunds. With great singers and a busy rehearsal room, we’ve got a wonderful atmosphere to sing in. Whether you’re a first timer or a regular choir member, you’ll be welcome with open arms.
"I have met a new group of friends, had fun, it is fantastic for your mental health. The songs we have learnt so far are brilliant and we all get very excited when we have to go to an event to busk. I would recommend joining to everyone because there is no judgment if you think you can’t sing. Best thing I have ever done for myself."
- Kim Laverick
