Open Rehearsal / ‘Come and Sing’ Day - St George’s Church, Kemptown, Brighton
Saturday October 10, 2015
We traditionally hold an Open Rehearsal each autumn, when we open our doors to those who would like to come along, join in for an evening, and find out more about membership. This year we are trying something different. Join us for a workshop day on Saturday 10th October. We will learn A German Requiem by Johannes Brahms during the workshop, and then perform the work in the evening.
You can book online for both the workshop and the concert HERE.
For further details, see Next Concerts.

The Big Sing - BBC Songs of Praise
Brighton Festival Chorus has recently taken part in a recording for BBC Songs of Praise in the Royal Albert Hall. The first of the two programmes recorded was broadcast on BBC1 on Sunday September 20. Entitled Tribute to a Queen, it marked the historic occasion of Her Majesty The Queen becoming our longest reigning monarch. It is available on BBC iPlayer until mid-October.
The second programme was a Christmas special, which will be broadcast on BBC1 on Sunday December 20.
We are currently rehearsing for the Berlioz Requiem (Grand Messe des Morts), which we will be performing on November 30 in the Royal Albert Hall, together with Goldsmiths Choral Union and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

"...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
