Ipswich Community Choir

Be part of a real community and make new friends when you sing with our community choir in Ipswich. Join our mission to raise £1 million for charity while singing your heart out. With lots of unique & fun fundraising events, you can let your hair down, put a wig on and dress in costumes! No audition is required!

“Just give it a go. A chance to make new friends, a fantastic opportunity to do something different. Help to raise money for worthwhile causes when we perform.  It’s an uplifting feeling to go home from choir just smiling - usually humming!”

- Karen W Choir


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. 

“Do a taster session, you won’t regret it, Andy is a fabulous choir leader and you’ll get a real buzz from the session, and you’ll make new friends along the way too!”

- Tara Sullivan

About the Ipswich choir group

The Ipswich 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"

A message from 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! Have a listen to my performance in the meantime.
