Southampton Community Choir
Join our friendly community choir at Southampton and sing your heart out. Join our mission to raise £1 million for charity while you sing your heart out. We have lots of unique events to raise money for charity where you can put a wig on, dress in costumes and have fun. No audition needed!
‘I feel uplifted and energised afterwards. Kurt makes the evening fun and enjoyable as do my other Buskerteers. Great group and very welcoming. One of the best things I have done.’
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.
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, 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.
"Great collaboration of like-minded people who enjoy singing and it’s a place to have fun forget your troubles and share the joy of music - but in particular the choir host who is very talented and engaging and super funny!"
- Christine Clarke

About the Southampton choir
Warm and compassionate are the words to describe our choir group at Southampton. 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’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 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.

Pride of Britain awards
Our Founder and Director of the Buskerteers Choir, Andrew Small, was nominated for a Pride of Britain Award 2021 for fundraising.
ITV News attended our local choir rehearsal to find out more about the Buskerteers.
"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. 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"
