‘Was started in June 2008 by a group of black youths who loved to sing and wanted to learn more about the gospel music style and heritage. That early group created a warm, inclusive and therapeutic environment, enabling its members to develop and contribute, and this captured the interest of others in the community ... We are now an independent, community-based, membership organisation. Managed by committee, we are funded by members’ contributions, grants and bookings.’

‘There are relatively few classical guitar orchestras in existence compared to the many and varied groups of assorted strings, woodwind, brass and percussion which have the ability to sustain notes and employ a wide range of dynamics and tone colours. However, guitar players are very keen to show what can be done with six nylon strings stretched across a wooden box; each string can be an instrument; melody, harmony and bass lines can all be played simultaneously by one player and when those resources are shared amongst a group of players the possibilities are even greater. Chego consists of some of the best guitar players in our city and who have come together to show what can be done with such instruments and with a bit of imagination and ingenuity.’

‘Can trace its origins back to 1903 when it sang to raise funds for British troops fighting in the Boer war. The choir was re-formed in 1948 by Bill Gane, who was eventually succeeded by his son Jack ... The choir has a membership in excess of 70, drawn from many walks of life. Our repertoire includes many modern as well as traditional male voice choir pieces ... We sing locally, throughout East Anglia and other parts of the British Isles - proud of the widely acknowledged reputation we have achieved. But we are only as good as the members we have and we are keen to have you. For whilst we know we sing very well, you can help us to sing even better!‘

'We invite members and musical directors from other Essex male voice choirs to our open chorus rehearsals on a Monday evening to experience singing in the barbershop style. These rehearsals are always open to the public ... You can sit back and enjoy the singing and get to see the way we work. You can even join in if you wish! We are sure you will enjoy the experience of harmonising along with a group of friendly guys singing their hearts out. Probably the most important thing is that there is no way we will put you under any pressure to join us. Whether or not you do is entirely your decision ... Our reportoire consists of a wide selection of songs, ranging from upbeat to romantic ballads - many of which are well known and have stayed popular over the years.'

‘In the late 1940s a few police officers and their wives started a group called “The New Court Players” and performed small plays in an old wooden hut near Police Headquarters, Springfield, Chelmsford, Essex. Several of the original members were moved from Headquarters and this, together with retirements, meant the members sadly depleted. However, a small number remained and the decision was taken to perform a musical and The New Court Players became The Police Headquarters Musical Society. Our first musical, Calamity Jane was performed in 1966 in the newly constructed Assembly Hall at Headquarters. Back in the 1980s the society was renamed The Essex Police Musical Society and since then the Society has produced two shows each year at the Assembly Hall.’

‘A highly respected mixed-voice choir dedicated to performing music to the highest standard and enjoying ourselves doing it – that way, we know our audience will enjoy themselves too. Our repertoire is varied ... We are never afraid to mix the old with the new in the same concert ... With fewer than 30 singers, every voice makes a difference. Development of good singing technique is encouraged in our warm-ups ... and by workshops with an internationally renowned vocal coach. Unsurprisingly, then, our soloists are usually drawn from the choir.’
