Update: We are not meeting until further notice due to Coronavirus. We have a 30 minutes Facebook Live virtual choir on our Facebook page, led by Emily, 7.30pm each Monday night.
We can carry on singing even if we can't meet!
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 £5 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.
Since the choir began in October 2012, they have directly donated £30,000 for local and national causes, as well as appearing in many charity concerts and events.
