Formed in 1988 by four teachers, St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir currently numbers approximately 90 members drawn from Bury St Edmunds and its surrounding villages and as far afield as Ipswich, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.
The Choir has a wide repertoire of songs from 1940s swing, Welsh hymns, spirituals, folk songs and material from musical theatre, to tunes from the charts. Besides performing locally in Suffolk, we have toured extensively both within the United Kingdom and Europe assisting many charitable organisations in their fund raising activities. We regularly sing with other choirs, groups, bands, orchestras or solo artists.
Why not be a part of this? The Choir welcomes new recruits, and invites you to be our guest for four weeks to see if you enjoy the experience and would like to become a member. We do not have voice tests. You are also welcome to become a Friend of the Choir.
Please browse our website for concert details, further information about our history and social events, our current repertoire, CD sales, latest news and how to join us.

SUSPENSION OF CHOIR ACTIVITIES
During the current Coronavirus pandemic the SEMVC committee has sadly decided to suspend Choir concerts. However, we are remaining active with virtual singing in conjunction with our friends at the Bury Friendly Orchestra, Newmarket Chamber Orchestra and Thetford Singers all of which are under the musical direction of Chris Parsons – KEEP SINGING – it’s good for your health!!
