"I would recommend this choir to anyone, even if you think you can't sing. It's so rewarding on many levels. 5 stars from me."
- Sue Treadway
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.
Find your safe space with us
With increasing loneliness and anxiety, you can find a safe space to find yourself again or escape from the pressures of life. Get support from like-minded people who genuinely care about you.
" I have met a new group of friends, and 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."
- Kim Laverick

With an atmosphere that’s full of life, we have a busy rehearsal room that is perfect for singing together in a group. Even if you’re nervous, we’ll look after you and take you under our wing.
"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"

A message from your choir leader
My name is Andrew Small and I am the Buskerteers Choir Leader for Brentwood, Chelmsford, Rayleigh and South Woodham Ferrers.
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! Watch the coir perform a flashmob in the meantime.
