Originated as the Music Lovers' Concert Club :  'In wartime Bury St Edmunds, local music-loving residents and visiting forces personnel created an audience for classical music, both live and recorded. The national Council for Encouragement of Music and the Arts – a war-time precursor of the Arts Council – recruited groups of professional musicians brave enough to undertake tours to blacked-out towns outside blitzed London.' The Club continued after the war and now offers about half a dozen evening recitals per season.

The Voice Squad came into being in 1992, when 10 little girls crammed themselves into the lounge of Birgitta’s terraced house, and sang for half an hour on Saturdays. The sweetshop on the corner was a major incentive, and the gigs and Festival successes began immediately. As the troupes spilled out of the back door, new premises were found, and small boys initiated into the growing forces. Today there are 3 Squads, each with around 40 members, embracing young singers aged 4-20+. The cross-section of repertoire is huge, catering for all tastes and stretching the singers to pull off entertainment in a style unique to Voice Squad which has had audiences expanding to fill sell-out gigs.’
