ESSEX POLICE CHOIR

Singing for good causes around Essex and beyond

WHO WE ARE

The Essex Police Choir is a four part choir (Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass) ensemble with around 50 members and we perform 8 to 10 concerts a year for good causes and charities, mainly in Essex.
Since the Choir's formation in 1989 we have raised in excess of £300,000 for good causes and have probably helped more churches to instal disabled toilets than any other organisation!
As well as performing to raise money for others, we have our own concerts the proceeds from which we donate to two charities that are chosen by the members each year and we aim to give them at least £1,500 each. These concerts are our Annual Concert with the Essex Police Band in Chelmsford Cathedral in October and our Christmas Concert at Trinity Methodist Church, Chelmsford

Blackmore, April 2017
​​
in December.  The Choir is totally self-funding, taking no money from the Police budget and so we rely on subscriptions, sales of CDs, donations and our 100 Club (see 'How You Can Help Us!'  tab above).​​  We pride ourselves on our professionalism but we also have a lot of fun!

See our Chosen Charities below and read through the following pages to learn more about the Choir.
     We rehearse every Tuesday evening at Essex Police Headquarters from 7.30pm until 9.30pm although we have a couple of weeks  break in Summer and at Christmas 
We are always on the look-out for new members and encourage anyone who can hold a tune (you don't have to read music or be a soloist to become a part of the Choir) to come along and experience a reheasal to see whether it is for you.

Farleigh Hospice in Chelmsford exists to meet the needs of local people affected by life-limiting illnesses and to support those who have been bereaved. Through the ongoing generosity of the mid-Essex population they provide a range of high quality services totally free of charge. By giving people choice and involvement in the care they receive the charity makes a real difference when and where it matters most
The charity (Special Needs and Parents) provides for Essex youngsters between 0-25 years who have any special need or disability. SNAP is there to inform, encourage and support parents, so that they can grow in strength and knowledge and become better equipped to give the best possible help to their children. They do this by providing telephone help, advice, counselling, training and information
