Welcome to The Orpheus Singers, the all-female choir based in Hadleigh, Essex, very near to Southend on Sea.

Our 130+ members with an age range of 25 – 85 enjoy the exhilarating and uplifting joy of singing together. 

2018 promises to be a full and rewarding year for our choir.  It marks the 10th Anniversary since the choir’s inception in 2008 and we have planned a full year’s programme, revisiting some of our favourite concerts and trying many new. As a registered charity, the concerts performed throughout the year will enable significant funds to be raised for a variety of local, national and international charities.

For details of future concerts please see our Up and Coming Events section and our Concert Dates page.

Our Musical Director is David Clark who is ably assisted by Melody Wallace, Assistant Musical Director and Janet Walker, Accompanist.  With their support we can perform a challenging repertoire, something for all the audience to enjoy, spirituals, songs from stage and film, jazz, traditional, folk and pop.  In fact, we sing Bohemian Rhapsody and Ave Maria and everything in between!

A warm welcome awaits any new member. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings 7.30pm – 9.30pm at Hadleigh Methodist Church. If you would like further details of how to join or to arrange a concert for your charity or organisation, please contact via or phone our Choir Secretary on 07790 613622.





Haven Hospices says……”Thank you so very much to the amazing Orpheus Singers for helping to make the Havens Staff and Volunteer Carol Services so very memorable. Wow, your singing made us feel like we were actually in heaven; so beautiful, thanks again”.
