Rainbow Chorus seeks new members

Have your say

Brighton and Hove’s Rainbow Chorus is inviting people to a new members’ night at St George’s Church, Kemptown, on Monday, September 15 (7pm).

The group, which is the only LGBT choir on the south coast, have celebrated what is believed to be their most successful year yet.

It’s certainly been one of their busiest. They have performed on more than 20 occasions, both in their home city and further afield, and always to great acclaim.

In Dublin, they participated alongside 80 other choirs from around the world in the Various Voices festival, giving two very well received performances.

Members of the Rainbow Chorus actively support the LGBT community, giving their time and also donating funds to a number of charitable organisations.

This year a very rewarding friendship has developed with Lunch Positive. The choir sang at their birthday party and donated the proceeds of their Strength in Harmony concert’s raffle.

At Trans*Pride, they were part of history being made. This was the first such event in Europe. They marched and sang from the Marlborough to New Steine Gardens. The following weekend they were part of the Pride parade with their ‘Glitter Ballroom’ themed float. They were honoured to be invited to sing on the Sunday night at the ‘Celebration of Love’ vigil organised by the LGBT safety forum.

This event closed the fantastic Pride weekend.
