The Big Sing - Royal Albert Hall, London
Sunday September 13, 2015
Brighton Festival Chorus has once again been 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 are brought together with some special guests. Two programmes will be recorded in the Royal Albert Hall, for transmission on BBC1 later in the year
Brighton Festival Chorus is now taking a summer break until our next performance in September. We were to have finished this season with a concert performance of Tchaikovsky's opera Iolanta in the Royal Albert Hall on June 24. However, Anna Netrebko, who was to sing the title role, unfortunately had to cancel the performance due to illness. We hope she has now recovered, and we look forward to working with her in the future.

"...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
