About us
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 love to be in a relaxed choir environment and who want to improve their skills or compete on a national level. Show Choir is a mix of glee club and pitch perfect but in a more relaxed setting. We believe that if you have a passion then that's all that matters. We bring modern and classic music into an environment where we can perform and enjoy a mutual love of music and performance.


What We do
We have two groups in Show Choir, our “Just Fun” group and our competitive group called “The Essex Echoes: License to trill”.

Show Choir’s “Just Fun” group consists of members who just want to have fun and improve their skills. This group runs every Thursday 6pm-7:30pm 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 as a group decide what songs we would like to sing, and we perform them in University venues and are looking to perform outside campus too.

Show Choir’s competitive group is called “The Essex Echoes: License to Trill” This group runs every Thursday 8pm-10pm in room 5.300a. We are competing on Sunday the 18th of March in the Arts Theatre in London’s West-End. Due to limited spaces we have to audition members, however we aim to make auditions as comfortable and relaxed as possible. We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated members, as well as members who suit the songs which we are performing. The Masters of Show Choir Competition is a national competition which include acclaimed judges and is held in London’s West-End.


We recently hosted and organised a Winter Show in the Ivor Crewe Building 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 society contributed to performances and we even had Manningtree High School perform.
