Strength in Harmony

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

Join RC+

During this time of increased restrictions as a result of Corona virus (C19), we will continue to operate our program of RC+ rehearsals but they will become virtual with the use of the Zoom App. If you would like to join us, please continue to email membership as below. We can then send you details of how to ‘attend’ our next virtual RC+ session.

Now in its fourth year, this exciting group was set up to allow as many people as possible to experience singing in a group.

RC+ workshops are loads of fun and a safe space where you can learn some great songs by ear, with sheet music and lyrics to aid if needed.

The sessions are led by the Rainbow Chorus music team, dynamic and encouraging Musical Director Aneesa Chaudhry and gifted professional pianist Mojca Monte Amali.

You DON’T need to worry about whether you can sing in tune, read music or commit regularly and you can just drop in!

You get to choose whether you sing the tune of a song, a higher harmony or a lower harmony and you’re encouraged to try out singing in different voice sections.

We explore topics that make you a better singer generally, including musicality, singing technique, breathing, posture, phrasing, tuning, listening, improvising and we help put theory into practice, helping you build confidence and making you stronger individual singers as well.

If you’re LGBT+ and your voice is changing or you want to explore singing in a different voice range, RC+ is perfect for you. We have a real mix of members including folk who haven’t sung before or in ages, Trans and non-binary folk as well as some regular choir goers. We’ll look after you both in the session and at our social afterwards.

Although these sessions are mainly funded by The Rainbow Fund, there is a subscription but this can be on a pay-as-you-attend basis and you are still welcome to come even if finances mean a subscription is not affordable for you.

Our usual venues for RC+ are St George’s Church, St George’s Road in Kemptown or Dorset Gardens Methodist Church, Dorset Gardens off St James’s Street in Brighton, although we occasionally use other venues. Everyone is friendly and we are a fun group to join, so you can just relax and enjoy yourself.

Dates of our next RC+ sessions are 5th December 2020 2.30pm, Sat 23rd January 2021 2-4pm & Sat 27th Feb 2021 2-4pm
