 The East Coast Collective chorus was formed in September 2019.  We are mixed chorus that meet at the Freston Village Hall, IP9 1AF, on Mondays from 7.30-9.30 pm.

We sing four part unaccompanied close harmony predominantly in the barbershop style 

You don’t need to be able to read music but being able to sing a tune would be helpful, there will be training and coaching on how to sing in the unaccompanied style, which will undoubtedly help anyone who currently sings in any other context.

Men and women of all ages and abilities welcome, why not give it a try. 

More information that should answer any questions you have can be found on the “INFO” page, just click the link above.

We like to keep it light hearted and fun, whether your a seasoned singer or a complete novice, come along, we have something to offer everyone

Once you become a member you will have access to the member section on this website, which has sheet music, teach tracks, and some useful YouTube links to various things to help you, as well as a whole host of other things that you should find useful.

Once you have had your trail period and you have decided to stay, we do ask for a minimal subscription of £12 a month, paid by standing order…  This helps us pay for the hire of the hall, and enables us to subsidise unifrom and/or events. (ECC is completely non profit, all money is used to further the chorus as whole)

Please browse this website and try and get a feel of what we are about.  We would love to see you there and think you will find singing in a group like this group very rewarding – we do!

If you wish to get in touch, please use the form on the contact page.
