About The Show Choir

The Show Choir was founded in 2012 as a community-based choir with a strong focus on Musical Theatre. As well as traditional musicals such as Les Miserables, Chorus Line, Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, Jersey Boys, Wicked, we also cover the more modern ‘jukebox’ musicals so you could find yourself singing anything from Cole Porter to Tina Turner or Queen to Abba.  We also sing non-musical theatre songs - basically if we like a song we will sing it!

Based in Essex the choir is open to anyone aged 16 and above. No audition is required to join the choir and you do not have to read music. All that is required is a passion for music and the ability to have a good time. We want you to have fun as well as make a beautiful sound, and don't forget the health benefits of joining a choir.
Decades of research has shown that singing individually and in groups is good for you on many levels. 

Here, according to science, are 10 key benefits of raising your voice in song.
