Welcome to The VIPs
Tickets are now on sale for our Concert on 17th March at St Matthew's Church in Ipswich.
We have an entertaining line up for you, including REUNION, a medal—winning Quartet from Cambridge, singing Barbershop and Doo-Wop music spanning the decades. Previous performances include the Royal Albert Hall & Westminster Cathedral.

We are Suffolk's male Barbershop chorus singing close harmony acappella arrangements of popular music. The VIPs meet every week to rehearse and we like to compete in the annual National Barbershop Convention at the end of May, as well as performing at occasional events across the county.
Now in our fifth year, our 14 man chorus is looking to recruit a few more men to swell the ranks, and the sound. So, if you think you might like to sing with us, check out our Contacts Page. We would love to hear from you – but men only I’m afraid. Sorry, Ladies!
BABS Convention - Bournemouth May 2017
As one of the smallest choruses in the competition, we weren't expecting miracles. So we were quite pleased with a performance that left us 10 places above the least able groups. We shall now know what we need to do to improve our sound, and hence the enjoyment of our audiences.

More recently, we sang at The Christmas Market in Ipswich on 9th December. Details and more photos of this and our other concerts and private functions can be found on our VIP Events page.
The VIPs — in the cold, hiding from Grandma’s beady eye!
