The Brighton Orpheus Choir was founded in 1944 and has celebrated its 70th anniversary of choral singing. During this time the choir has built an enviable reputation based on performances of the classical choral repertoire, whilst also exploring the work of contemporary composers. The choir is dedicated to presenting concerts of a high standard with professional instrumentalists and soloists. Stella Hull has been our musical director and conductor since 1999.
Brighton Orpheus normally gives three concerts a year – two major works at either St. John’s Church, Knoyle Road, Brighton or All Saints Church, Eaton Road, Hove and Summer concerts of a more relaxed nature, but not less demanding, at Varndean School and other venues. The choir runs workshops and sings Christmas carols at Brighton Station to raise money for charity. In recent years this has been for Shelter.
Our summer concert, Pastorale is fast approaching and final rehearsals are underway. We are performing a lovely evening of opera choruses, madrigals, and other pastoral songs on 18th June 2016 at Varndean School. Tickets are on sale on-line.
