Southend Community Choir

Be part of a real community and make new friends when you sing with our community choir in Southend.  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 required!

"When you get to the end of a session you come out feeling like you have really achieved something and all warm and glowing inside with joy."

- Coral Brown

About the Southend choir group

Warm and genuine are the words to describe our choir group at Southend. 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"

- Barbara Holloway


Learn from professionally trained musicians

Don’t worry if it’s your first time singing. We teach you how to sing with our professional, trained musicians. You’ll improve your singing and have fun every week.


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

"I'm so glad that I decided to join. Best decision I have ever made."

A message from your choir leader

My name is Dan Brock and I am the Buskerteers Choir Leader for Thurrock, Southend, Maldon and Colchester.


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 a performance of mine in the meantime.


Dan Brock
