Euro Funding Success
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 Amiens, Compiegne and Rennes in November 2013 to sing the Verdi Requiem, and was a resounding success with four highly acclaimed, sold out concerts. Phase 2 was a New Year concert in Rouen to sing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. The 5000 seat arena was nearly sold out, and the concert was another success.
The final phase will be two further performances of the Verdi Requiem in Thurrock, Essex on July 3 and July 4, when Brighton Festival Chorus will be joined by the Thurrock Community Choir.
Since its formation in 1968 Brighton Festival Chorus has developed a well-earned reputation as one of the most versatile choirs in the UK, competing with London-based choirs in its busy schedule of concerts. The Chorus has gained the respect of many leading conductors and orchestras for its consistently high standards and for the breadth of repertoire that it performs.
