Chorus Reaches Important Milestone
Brighton Festival Chorus was founded in 1968, and has always had a busy schedule of concerts, recordings and tours both at home and abroad. The forthcoming performance of the Bach St. John Passion on Good Friday, April 3 marks a significant milestone for us - it will be our 500th concert.
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 and 2014. We toured northern France to sing the Verdi Requiem and Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, and gave two further performances of the Verdi Requiem at the Backstage Centre in Essex in July 2014, when Brighton Festival Chorus was joined by the Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus.
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 this summer 2015.

"...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."
"There is something fundamentally moving about hearing dozens of human voices singing in harmony and this performance by the 130 members of Brighton Festival Chorus was both uplifting and enriching. Under the baton of James Morgan, this internationally renowned choir produced an impeccable delivery of two choral works by John Rutter."
John Rutter: Requiem (All Saints, Hove)
John Rutter: Mass of the Children
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.
