Following our sell out show at Ipswich Corn Exchange we’re now back at rehearsals and will be welcoming new singers for the first few weeks of term… you’ve still got time to join so please come along and give us a try if you think you might like to sing with us.
Welcome… Do you love to sing?
…well now you’ve found the friendly, fun, fabulous chorus you’ve been searching for!
- Don’t need any experience
- Won’t have to audition or sing on your own
- Don’t need to read music
- Unashamedly sing great pop songs in harmony to professional backing tracks – this is unlike any choir you’ve ever heard!
Founded in Framlingham, Suffolk, in 2012 by professional singer and vocal coach Yula Andrews, Pop Chorus offers feel-good singing for adults* of all abilities, with a firm focus on having fun whilst making a great sound.
The original Framlingham group still meets on Thursday nights and the addition of groups in Kesgrave, Ipswich and Felixstowe has seen the Chorus grow from 8 singers to around 200!

Pop Chorus are proud to be a Community Partner of St Elizabeth Hospice
Since April 2016, Pop Chorus have pledged to fundraise on behalf of St Elizabeth Hospice. The hospice provides care for over 2000 people with progressive diseases every year in East Suffolk and South Norfolk. Care is given wherever it is needed, primarily at home but also in the community and at the hospice. The services are provided free of charge but the independent charity needs £9.1 million every year to run. A large proportion of those funds come from the community and that’s where partnerships with groups like Pop Chorus come in. Over the coming months and years, we hope to raise lots of money towards this very valuable service. We were delighted to hand over a cheque to the hospice for £1,700 in 2016 and this year we’ve raised well over £5,000.
Yula Andrews is a trained singer with over 25 years of performing experience, ranging from Puccini to ABBA tributes! She has been leading choirs and offering vocal coaching for over 15 years and is a member of the Association of Teachers of Singing.
