‘Consists of a number of amateur singers, some trained and very experienced, others less experienced, but all excited by choral music.  The Group has existed since 1977, always aiming to explore and perform a wide range of choral music.  It prides itself on the breadth of its repertoire and often chooses to sing pieces that are less familiar to its potential audience and especially choral music of the present and although much of what the choir produces is challenging, we hope that it proves satisfying to choir and audience alike ... Aims to perform in public twice a year ... Although we expect high standards of ourselves in responding to the music we perform, we do not hold auditions, and anyone who is willing to commit themselves to the music week by week is most welcome to join us.’

 

'Established in 1976 (as the Basildon Concert Band), and now comprises about 50 musicians ... We are always keen to attract new players – brass, woodwind and percussion – and all are assured of a warm welcome.

’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.’

 

'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.'

'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.'
