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 safely.

This Saturday 19th June RC+ is back in real life! 2pm to 3pm at Royal Spa Nursery. See the flyer for more details. If you would like to join us, please email membership as below. We can then send you further details.

Running for over 5 years, 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 LGBTQ+ 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.

Your first session is free. After this 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.

When restrictions allow singing indoors again, our usual venues 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.

Our July RC+ session is on the 10th.
