Diss choir celebrates ten years of togetherness and raising money for good causes




A choir is celebrating 10 years of boosting morale through the power of song.

Discord, a wellbeing choir, was formed by musician Michael Dann in Diss in 2011 and currently has 350 members within its ranks.

Over the years, its members have performed with Broadway and West End Star Kerry Ellis, sung on the BBC’s One Show and even entertained Queen guitarist Brian May.

Although very focused on the wellbeing that can be had from singing, the choir also gives back to the community, and has raised more than £40,000 for charity since its inception.

The group currently meets online, but the sessions attract up to 100 people, who continue to support each other through a shared joy of singing.

Mr Dann said: “It has been a honour to provide this service for the members and I would like to thank them for their support of the choir since day one, but especially during 2020.”
