Strength in Harmony

The Rainbow Chorus is Brighton and Hove's largest non-audition community LGBTQ+ choir.


About us

Welcome to the Rainbow Chorus! We are the largest non-audition community LGBTQ+ 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. 

Choir News


Rainbow Chorus is delighted to announce its 2019 winter concert. Come and join us for an evening of Phantom Festivities!

Expect a fun and festive evening of fabulous sounds that is the musical equivalent of a box of Quality Street—there’s something for everyone!

There’s beautifully rousing classics from Vivaldi’s Gloria to Sondheim’s Tonight; good old, festive chestnuts — White Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Twelve Days of Christmas and other sing-along favourites, and after the amazing response from Les Misérables last year, this year the Rainbow Chorus will be presenting, for the first time, a medley from (the clue is in the title!) another West End classic Phantom of the Opera with beautiful numbers such as Think of Me, Angel of Music and Wishing You were Somehow Here Again.


And as if that wasn’t enough there’s always the chance to treat yourself to a glass of mulled wine or fruit punch from our well stocked bar (other drinks are available!) and perhaps a delicious mince pie or one of the other scrummy nibbles on offer.

So dust off your Santa hats and come along for what we promise to be a fantastic and uplifting evening!
