Group A is our vocal performance initiative for young people in Suffolk

Working with 8-18-year-olds in Suffolk, Group A consists of vocal performance groups that rehearse and perform throughout the year. The project gives young people opportunities to work with a wide variety of professional musicians and artists, explore a breadth of musical genres and take part in exciting and creative performances, locally and nationally. The work aims to help build positive community links and raise aspirations for young people.

Group A is free to attend, and there's no application or audition process. New members are always welcome!

If you live in or around Lowestoft, Ipswich, or Leiston and would like to register for Group A, just complete the registration form below and we'll add you to our mailing list. Alternatively, just show up to a Group A session (see dates and times below) and we can register you on the day.

If you'd like to chat to us about Group A, get in touch at or call 01728 687152 to speak to a member of the Community team.

We also offer free Group A singing sessions in local schools. Get in touch at if you would like to organise a free singing session at your school to get your pupils involved!
