Welcome to those without musical experience

Don’t worry if you don’t have previous singing or musical experience. 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. 

 

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. 

Join our safe space to be yourself

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 in the choir group. Find yourself again with help from our choir. 

“It’s fantastic! I enjoy learning the harmonies and new songs, making new friends and leaving feeling totally uplifted. I really enjoyed singing at the festival with all the choirs, such a lovely day”

A message from your choir leader

My name is Kurt Munro and I am the Buskerteers Choir Leader for New Forest, Bournemouth, Southampton and Portsmouth.
 
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.
