Please log in to join this organisation.



Show Choir was ratified at the beginning of 2017 and since then we have gained more than 50 members. Our aim is to bring people together who like to be in a relaxed yet enthusiastic choir environment; for people who want to simply improve their skills and have fun, or, compete on a national level.
Show Choir is a mix of Glee / Pitch Perfect-style, but in a more relaxed setting. We believe that if you have a passion then that's the main thing! We bring a wide variety of genres of music into an environment where we can perform and enjoy a mutual love of music and performance.


Show Choir consists of members who just want to have fun and improve their skills.This group runs every Monday 7pm-8:30pm in room 5.300a, you do not have to audition to be a part of this group. Every week we have themes in which members can perform if they would like to. We perform in University venues and are looking to perform outside campus, too. We also play singing-related games, and practise different vocal techniques.

Show Choir’s competition group called “The Essex Echoes: Licence To Trill” runs every Thursday 7pm-9pm in room 5.300a. We have competed and performed in the Masters of Show Choir competition in the Arts Theatre, West End where we sang a variety of songs in a tightly arranged set list, including a section of acapella, also with some choreography - so energy is a must! 

The Masters of Show Choir competition is a national competition which include critically acclaimed judges. This competition will continue in 2019 in Portsmouth's The New Theatre Royal, for the 24th March. (These may change). We will be holding a group audition on the 27th of Ocotber in room 5.300a. Although talent and skill are necessary, we are looking for passion, energy and dedication just as much.



  • We hosted and organised a Winter Show in the Ivor Crewe Lecture Theatre in aid of Age Concern Colchester, where we raised £511. Every single penny went straight to the Charity and we had an amazing turn out. Other societies, such as the Music and Theatre Arts societies, contributed to performances - and we even had Manningtree High School perform.

  • We have performed in the West End with 10 other universities in the Masters of Show Choir competition. Each year, the competition release a theme - last year was 'Old Skool RnB and Hip Hop'. You can find our performance on Youtube and on our social media platforms.
