Discord, the wellbeing choir

DISCORD the wellbeing choir started on 12th January 2011 at Diss Methodist Church, Diss and has grown in that time to 6 sessions running each week providing singing for well being! It is aimed at all adults over 16 who have a love for singing and a good sense of fun. No experience required (but those that have are equally welcome), no auditions, so no pressure!! We will sing from a wide selection of songs from musicals through to modern contemporary, classical to folk. Members are also encouraged to put song suggestions forward. 2014 saw DISCORD performing ‘Songs From The Shows’ and in 2015 the theme was ‘Movie Songs In 2016 songs were based on the theme of ‘decades’ with songs from the 1920’s to present day.. 2017’s theme will be Songs From Stage & Screen.

Michael says "There is a voice in everyone regardless of how good or bad!’’ and added “Often choral groups or choirs can seem off-putting with auditions, musical knowledge and the need for a good voice are expected whereas DISCORD will be more focused on the benefits of singing together and the recognised health benefits both physically and mentally with no auditions and no expectations". Since starting DISCORD Michael is proud of the fact that DISCORD performs to a standard which many formal choirs would aspire to! This was recognised when the group were asked to perform with Broadway & West End leading lady Kerry Ellis in 2014 - Craig Adams (Miss Ellis Musical Director) commented that DISCORD were One of the best groups they had worked with not bad for a group that sing for wellbeing!! 

DISCORD has brought a new community spirit and since it’s inception has raised over £25,000 for various charities - giving something back is very important to the ethos of DISCORD and each year a different set of charities is supported.

Each session lasts 2 hours and costs £6 per session - free refreshments available at all sessions, don’t forget to bring your own mug.

You only pay for the sessions you attend with no up-front termly payments or having to pay if you cant attend a session.
