Welcome to the website for Phoenix Singers, an amateur choral society that was founded by musician Malcolm Russell in 1976. We are based in the historic and lively market town of Framlingham in east Suffolk. With a choir of between 50 and 60 mixed voices we perform three concerts a year, mainly of sacred/liturgical but occasionally secular music, in either St Michael's Parish Church, Framlingham College Chapel or the Headmaster Porter Theatre at Framlingham College. Sometimes we combine forces with other choirs to perform a major work at Snape Maltings or elsewhere. 

For most concerts Phoenix Singers engages professional soloists and a small orchestra of mostly professional musicians, with the aim of giving a high standard of performance.

Phoenix Singers is not an auditioned choir. If you would like us to get in touch to discuss potential membership with you, or to enquire about any other aspect of the choir's life please email phoenixsingers@outlook.com with your contact details so that we can do that.

Membership subscriptions are currently £135 per year, payable at the beginning of the Autumn Term; often a £10 discount is available for members paying before the Annual General Meeting at the end of September. Singers joining later in the year pay on a pro rata basis (£45 per term) and in exceptional circumstances termly payments can be agreed at the Treasurer's discretion.

A contact details form can be downloaded here to help you. We require this to authorise us to add your contact details to our membership list.

Phoenix Singers is a Registered Charity No 1076549 and is affiliated to Making Music, the national federation of music groups and societies.

Our Next Events will be:




Phoenix Singers Choral Workshop

Saturday 18th January 2020

10.00am - 4.30pm

Thomas Mills High School, Saxtead Rd, Framlingham, IP13 9HE


Phoenix Singers warmly invite you to beat the January blues and join us to sing short works by Elgar, Parry and Goodall.

Geoff Lavery, our music director, will lead the day.  In the morning we will split into voice parts for three sessions.  There will be sectional rehearsals of the music, vocal training (Eric Tebbett) and the opportunity to practice posture, breathing and relaxation techniques (Izzy Ixer).

In the afternoon we will all join together with Geoff and our accompanist, Dominic Nunn to put the final finishing touches to the music.  There will be an informal free concert, to which all are welcome, at 3.45pm.

We will be supporting Suffolk Mind.  Owing to the generosity of choir members and those providing tuition on the day, our overheads will be modest and all remaining proceeds from the day will go to them.

Music scores and light refreshments will be provided.  Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move and relax in.  Bring your own packed lunch (no nuts please) a bottle of water in case you need a drink in-between tea breaks and soft pencil.  We hope that you will be able to join us and look forward to an enjoyable and informative day together.
