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.

Join Brighton and Hove's LGBTQ+ Rainbow Chorus as they entertain you with a sumptuous summer concert of two halves.

We will transport you to the magical world of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, performing his celebrated Stabat Mater, a choral work which will really showcase the skill and ability of the choir. Last performed by the choir in 2012, this will be a passionate and emotional classical experience, so don't miss out!

But of course, the Rainbow Chorus will also showcase their fun, uplifting and diverse sound with a mix of modern classics and pop standards including Bring Me Sunshine, May It Be, Total Eclipse Of The Heart, This Is Me and many more.

The evening is hosted by our amazing Musical Director Aneesa Chaudhry and our fabulous new accompanist Olly Parr supported by the brilliant BSL interpreter Marco Nardi.

The Rainbow Chorus will also have their famous raffle of beautiful and stuffed Hampers and you'll be able to treat yourself to a glass or two of Pimms from our well-stocked bar.

So get your tickets now and put the date in your diary for what promises to be a fantastic, diverse uplifting evening of entertainment!

"An evening out with the Rainbow Chorus is more than just going to a concert, it's an expression of belonging, solidarity and inclusion that defines the very notion of community that many aspire to in Brighton and Hove."
