A Suffolk choir is bringing together all five of its community singing groups for its biggest-ever summer concert.

Pop Chorus runs groups for adults of all abilities, singing pop songs in harmony to backing tracks, with groups in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Framlingham and Kesgrave.

Its summer concert, taking place at the Ipswich Corn Exchange on Saturday, July 15, will see more than 150 singers take part.

Titled Lose Yourself In The Music, the repertoire will include The Beatles and Dusty Springfield, to Sia and Olly Murs.

Pop Chorus will be joined by special guests, including the Ipswich Community Children’s Choir and the Debenham Girls’ Group, a group of ladies in their late teens and 20s with mild to moderate disabilities.

Pop Chorus director Yula Andrews said: “I’m passionate about how good singing is for people and am so proud to run such an amazing choir, full of the loveliest people.

“I can’t wait to see them shine in our biggest concert yet on the Corn Exchange stage.”
