Summer Break

The BFC is now taking a summer break. We start rehearsing again in September.

We are always on the lookout for new members, and we will be holding our annual Open Rehearsal on Tuesday October 10. This is when we invite members of the public to come and join us for an evening's rehearsal. If they enjoy the experience, we encourage them to sign up for an audition to become a member.

Watch this space for further details.

 

Anniversaries

2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Brighton Festival Chorus, and we are planning a whole year of celebratory events, concerts and special performances to mark this event - from the 2017 Christmas Concert through to the 2018 Christmas Concert.

More details to be announced shortly.

To mark the centenary of the end of the First World War we will be giving several performances of the War Requiem by Benjamin Britten in 2018. We will tour some of the major cities of the Somme region in France and also perform it in Coventry Cathedral, where the first performance took place on 30 May 1962. The War Requiem was commissioned to mark the consecration of the new Coventry Cathedral, which was built after the original 14th century structure was destroyed in a WW2 bombing raid.
