Songs of Praise - The Christmas Big Sing - BBC1
Back in September Brighton Festival Chorus was once again invited to take part in the annual recording in the Royal Albert Hall for BBC Songs of Praise. Under the title The Big Sing, singers and musicians from around the UK were brought together with some special guests. Two programmes were recorded, and the second of these, the Christmas Big Sing, is transmitted today on BBC1 at 5.25pm.
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 summer 2015. See News.
