Strength in Harmony

The Rainbow Chorus is Brighton and Hove's largest community LGBTQ+ SATB choir.

 

About us

Welcome to the Rainbow Chorus! We are the largest community LGBTQ+ SATB choir in the south-east outside of London. Based in Brighton & Hove we have been celebrating diversity through music since 1997. We welcome people from all sections of our community.

 

We offer an enjoyable, supportive and affirming environment for LGBTQ+ members to sing, develop their community spirit and awareness, and enable individuals to develop their talents, skills and confidence.

 

Through public performance, we enhance the profile of LGBTQ+ people, particularly in Brighton and Hove, and contribute to the quality and range of community events. We believe that singing at events such as World Aids Day and TransPride sends a clear message that we are out and proud and all different. As part of our commitment to the local community, we also support other charities by singing to help them raise funds.

 

Join the Choir

Anyone who identifies as LGBTQ+ is welcome to join us and you don’t need to audition, you just need to want to sing! There are two ways to join the Rainbow Chorus family:

Join Rainbow Chorus

The Rainbow Chorus is a community choir with high standards that rehearses weekly on a Monday evening with additional rehearsals on some weekends. We have New Members Nights twice a year (January and September) with no obligation to join and no audition, although there is an expectation that you can sing in tune.

 

Join RC+

If you have less free time, or want to improve your singing voice in a less formal setting, our monthly RC+ workshops are loads of fun and a safe space where you can learn some great songs by ear, with sheet music and lyrics to aid if needed.
