Felixstowe Community Choir is a choir for those over 18 who enjoy singing pop song and songs from musicals. It meets weekly on a Monday at The Orwell Hotel. For more news about the choir watch this website, local press and media, Twitter and Facebook.
Around 60-100 men and women of all ages attend and have a wide repertoire of songs from The Beatles to Adele. There is no audition to join, and singers do not need to read music, as sheet music is not used.
Singers assemble from 7pm, (the bar is open!), and singing begins at 7.30. The weekly fee is £4 per person payable on the door.
The pianist conductor 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.
As a community non-profit-making choir, run by volunteers, all profits are donated to charities, suggested by the members.
In March 2018 the choir gave £1,000 each to Fresh Start New Beginnings, Ipswich Hospital children's schoolroom and Music in Felixstowe.
Since the choir began in October 2012, they have directly donated over £24,000 for local and national causes, as well as appearing in many charity concerts and events.
