Pop Chorus Summer Concert: Lose yourself in the music

Saturday, 15 July, 2017 - 19:30

Ipswich Corn Exchange, King Street, Ipswich, IP1 1DH

Quirky Suffolk-based choir is bringing together over 150 singers from all 5 of its community singing groups to perform its biggest ever summer concert at Ipswich Corn Exchange .

The ‘Lose Yourself In The Music’ concert will be an audio-visual spectacular celebrating pop songs from The Beatles and Dusty Springfield to more contemporary artists including Sia and Olly Murs – all in glorious 5 part harmony. The evening is going to have a real party atmosphere and remind everyone how we need to lose ourselves in music, particularly in troubling times. Special guests will include the Ipswich Community Children’s Choir and the Debenham Girls’ Group, a group of ladies in their late teens and 20s with mild to moderate disabilities who have joined the choir at other events in recent years.

Pop Chorus’s singing groups are for adults of all abilities, unashamedly singing great pop songs in harmony to backing tracks. There’s no audition and members don’t need to read music or have any experience. Evening groups in Framlingham and Ipswich and a daytime group in Kesgrave have recently been joined by another daytime group in Felixstowe. The choir has grown from just 8 singers in 2012 to over 200 singers across all 5 groups today.

The choir is proud to be a community partner with St Elizabeth’s Hospice, fundraising year-round and most recently singing an emotional rendition of ‘Let It Be’ at the start of this year’s Neon Midnight Walk to over 2,500 enthusiastic walkers. They are hoping to raise at least £2,000 from a concert raffle and programme sales, to help towards the independent charity’s annual £9m running costs.

Pop Chorus director Yula Andrews said “I’m passionate about how good singing is for people and am so proud to run such an amazing choir, full of the loveliest people. I can’t wait to see them shine in our biggest concert yet on the Corn Exchange stage!”.

Tickets £13 each (£8 concessions) available from the Corn Exchange box office 01473 433100 or
