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 are already developing a 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 every one laughing and singing - including the majority of members who have never sung in a choir before.
Members of Felixstowe Community Choir are currently supporting UNICEF (for refugees) and Felixstowe Volunteer Coast Patrol Rescue Services, through their weekly raffle. They also plan to give smaller amounts to other local charities. Since the choir began in October 2012, they have raised over £10,000 for local and national causes.
