Felixstowe Community Choir is a choir for those over 18 who enjoy singing pop songs and songs from musicals. For more news about the choir watch this website, local press and media, Twitter and Facebook.
Around 60 men and women of all ages attend on Monday evenings at The Orwell Hotel, Felixstowe and have a wide repertoire of songs from Disney to Ed Sheeran. There is no audition to join, and singers do not need to read music, as sheet music is not used.
The weekly fee is £5 per person payable on the door.
Our music coach is Emily Bennett from Felixstowe, a professional musician and teacher, who gets everyone laughing and singing - including the majority of members who have never sung in a choir before.
We start at 7.30pm promptly, with a short break at 8.30pm, and end promptly at 9.30pm.
In February 2023 a total of £1,500 was given to local community projects and charities nominated and voted for by choir members. The lucky recipients were: The Hub at St Philips, Felixstowe (food bank etc), Cuppa Cafe (warm hub and lunches), Guide Dogs for the Blind and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
As a community choir, run by volunteers, the weekly raffle proceeds and all profits make up the donations.
Since the choir began in October 2012, they have directly donated £36,500 to local and national causes, as well as appearing in many charity concerts and events.
