‘Brighton Festival Chorus is one of the country’s leading symphony choruses’ (The Times) and in our home town of Brighton considered ‘one of the jewels in the city’s musical crown’ (The Argus).
The 150-strong Chorus performs regularly with all the major British orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The Philharmonia and the London Symphony Orchestra. BFC also has a long-standing relationship with the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO).
BFC has made 10 appearances at the BBC Proms and been nominated for two Grammy awards over its 50 year history.
BFC is independent and develops it own creative programme which includes off-book, semi-staged and dawn chorus events alongside live film performances & TV commercials. The Chorus has supported artists as diverse as Armstrong and Miller, Pete Townshend, Katherine Jenkins, Dame Edna Everage, Chris de Burgh and Alfie Boe.
Under the direction of James Morgan, BFC’s vision is to reimagine the symphony chorus for tomorrow, through extending the breadth of their work and embracing new possibilities, through the passion and commitment of their singers, the brilliance of the Brighton Festival Youth Choir and through outreach workshops and school events.
