+ Melvin Beddow Big Band

’Since its formation in 1979 ... as the South Woodham Ferrers Male Voice Choir -  the choir has grown steadily in numbers and currently there are over 60 choristers, drawn from a wide variety of back­grounds ... New and creative arrangements of both pop and classical music, sometimes augmented with the use of orchestral backing tracks, have given a depth, breadth and vibrancy to our music not normally associated with male choirs ...You are very welcome to come along to any of our rehearsals to try us out and see what we are about. There are no auditions and no previous singing experience is needed.’

 

+ Men2Sing

'The all-female choir based in Hadleigh, Essex, very near to Southend on Sea. Our 140+ members with an age range of 25 – 85 enjoy the exhilarating and uplifting joy of singing together. As a registered charity, the many concerts performed throughout the year enable significant funds to be raised for a variety of local, national and international charities.'

+ Orpheus Singers [Hadleigh]

'The Band is able to deliver high quality and entertaining concert programmes at the same time as maintaining a very friendly and inclusive atmosphere. Rayleigh Brass do not enter contests like many bands, but seek instead to broaden the appeal of the band beyond the traditional brass band image, playing a wide and challenging repertoire, at the same time trying to relate to their audience.'

 

+ Rayleigh Brass

‘A fun loving ladies choir based in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex. The choir was formed in 1989 and continues to grow every year having over 70 members. The choir sings in 4 parts and any lady, aged from 18 upwards is more than welcome to join us, there is no audition so don’t be shy!’
