Success of European Concert Series
In 2013 Brighton Festival Chorus was awarded support for a series of concerts in France and the UK throughout 2013 to 2015. Phase 1 was a tour of northern France in November 2013 to sing the Verdi Requiem. Phase 2 was a New Year concert in Rouen to sing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Phase 3 involved two further performances of the Verdi Requiem at the Backstage Centre in Essex in July, when Brighton Festival Chorus was joined by the Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus.
All phases of the concert series have now been completed, and the European organising committee has been so pleased with the success of these concerts they have invited us to be a part of a new European project starting summer 2015. See News.

"...From the first almost whispered "Requiem" to the final dying phrase, the BFC was crisp and clear, warm and haunting....."
"Brighton Festival Chorus ... this excellent ensemble, whose reputation and renown deservedly continue to bring pride to the city."
