Strength in Harmony

The Rainbow Chorus is Brighton & Hove’s only non-audition LGBTQ+ choir, and the only one in the South outside of London.

18 years – Rainbow Chorus goes from strength to strength

The Brighton and Hove LGBT Rainbow Chorus will be celebrating it’s 18th birthday this year with a packed calendar of events for everyone to enjoy. The chorus, led by musical director Aneesa Chaudhry and pianist Mojca Monti and supported by a dedicated committee, will open the year by performing at Sing Out on May 18 at the Brighton Fringe Festival. July will see the Chorus showcasing its substantial repertoire with two special concerts at St George’s Church to celebrate its birthday. From Shenandoah and True Colours to Adagio for Strings, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

The chorus will also perform at a series of regular community events – Pride, Trans* Pride and World Aids Day among others – and they will also be singing at their ever popular annual Christmas Concert at the end of the year.

And that’s not all!  The Rainbow Chorus has been chosen to sing at the International Choir Festival to be held in Amsterdam in 2016 during Pride celebrations – an amazing achievement and honour.

This is just a selection of the events planned for the year. So much to celebrate!

The chorus always welcomes new members, giving them the opportunity to sing an amazing range of songs within a supportive, fun and friendly group, with lots of social activities to get involved with throughout the year.

The Rainbow Chorus is extremely representative of the local community, and sponsors are always welcome to take advantage of this excellent positioning by supporting its programme and activities throughout the year.

Supporting events in the wider LGBT community is a defining feature of Rainbow Chorus activities and they will be co-hosting Hand in Hand, the international event for LGBT choirs, at the Brighton Dome in June. This is a special three-day festival which brings together choirs from all around the country.

Hand in Hand is scheduled to take place from June 12 to 14, 2015.
