Southend Boys' and Girls' Choirs always welcome new members, and the start of the term is an ideal time to join.

Both choirs are accepting new members aged 8 upwards. There is no membership or joining fees provided you are accepted, and members will have the chance to sing with the choirs in the Royal Albert Hall and other major venues during the year.

The choirs have concert tours every year, and this year will tour from Chicago to Boston, including visiting the great Niagara Falls. The Choirs offer wonderful opportunities to keen young singers from Southend and beyond, and all ages are welcome.

The choirs pride themselves with a wide age range of singers, with singers entering the choirs at 8 and stay until university and beyond. Many of our singers have continued their careers as professional singers.

Boys whose voices are changing are invited to join our senior choir – Southend Young Men’s Chorus. This newly formed group offers older boys the opportunity to explore new registers in tenor and bass range. The group works alongside the main upper voices choirs, so offeringthe unique opportunities for the choirs to perform in full 4-part harmony.


From Wednesday 23rd July - Sunday 3rd August , 37 members of the Southend Boys' and Girls' Choir departed the UK for a 12 day concert tour to US, staying in Chicago, Cleveland, Niagara, Ithaca and Boston.  They will be hosted by local choirs and Churches, and performed with some excellent youth choirs, as well as giving their own performances.  Follow our recent journey on the website by clicking the link below.
