Ipswich Hospital Community Choir is delighted to announce that local West End Star, Kerry Ellis has agreed to become Patron of the choir.
2023 marks the 10th Anniversary of the founding of the choir. To celebrate the Choir sang in a concert with The St Peters' Band and raised the sum of £1350. This will be divided between The Ipswich Hospital Children's Appeal and The Jess Grant Celebration.
Ipswich Hospital Community Choir meets every Wednesday in the Courtyard Restaurant at Ipswich Hospital. The aim of the choir is to provide a forum whereby hospital staff, volunteers and members of the community can come together to sing. Experience of singing in choirs or the ability to read music is NOT a requirement, just enthusiasm to come together with a group of friendly people and enjoy time together. At the same time, the choir seeks to support the hospital by singing at events and raising funds for hospital charities and other associated organisations.
In the last year, the choir has sung at Ipswich Music Day, Suffolk Remembers ( St Elizabeth's Hospice) and with our friends the Ipswich Hospital Band. The choir is currently preparing for Christmas performances.
The choir's repertoire is wide ranging from classical to recent pop, mostly in 4-part harmony. Current new pieces include a medley of Les Miserables, Super Trouper, and Beautiful Ghosts from the recent film of Cats. We would welcome new members to all 4 sections and do not worry if you do not know your voice range, our Musical Director will be able to work on that with you.
If you would like to know more with regard to joining the choir or to discuss a performance, please use the Contact Us link.
Chair on behalf of IHCC committee.
