Happy to be singing again!


Our Summer term is now in full swing and we are singing some real corkers this term!

Here’s a little inspiration for our Brighton choir, who are singing this instant classic by Pharrell Williams this term – fellow Brightonians showing us how happy they can be:

Human Pyramids!!


This Saturday night saw our SOTCC group singing alongside the amazing Human Pyramids as part of The Great Escape festival! It was just amazing! They did us proud and we couldn’t be happier with how it went! Here are a few beautiful photos and a snippet of video. Enjoy..

Here is a link to the video – Human Pyramids

Oh and here is where to buy Human Pyramids album http://humanpyramids.bandcamp.com/ :-)

Enjoy the sunny weekend!



Human Pyramids


Last week the SOTC Choir were approached by the wonderful Human Pyramids to join them on stage THIS weekend as part of Brighton’s The Great Escape Festival and of COURSE we had to say yes!

A bold group of our singers from both the Brighton and Hassocks choirs are due to sing at St Mary’s Church, BN2 1PR in Kemp Town on Saturday 9pm. If you have yourself a TGE ticket please go along and support them – it’s going to be fab!

Second FREE taster this week at SOTCC!!


This week sees the second of our FREE TASTER sessions at Soul of the City Choir!!

Tonight at St Paul’s School, St Nicholas Road, Brighton BN1 3LP and tomorrow at Downlands School, Dale Ave, Hassocks (starting at 7.10pm) we will be running an hour and a half of singing lessons, warm-ups and songs to see whether you would like to join us for this exciting summer term ahead!

Come along to sing such songs as the fabulous Aloe Blacc (click through to see the youtube clip) amongst carefully smuggled classics such as “Reach Out I’ll Be There” by the Four Tops and “Blackbird” by the Beatles..

Everyone welcome!



Summer Term Starting Tomorrow!!


Helloo Lovely Singers!

Our new Summer Term begins tomorrow with our first FREE Brighton taster session running from 19.10 to 21.00 and our first FREE Hassocks session on Wednesday!! I’ve seen the song choices, they’re good’uns.. :-)

We still have a few places available on all of our taster sessions and in our term so please forward this on to your friends, colleagues and families and lets get everyone we know singing this summer..!

And for those at the Brighton Clarendon performance last month here are a couple of snaps of you beautiful singers shot by the wonderful Hannah Sherlock..
Can’t wait to get singing tomorrow! See you then…!!


Fabulous Spring Term Performance


Soul of the City Choir not only blew the audience away at both our end of year Spring performances – we also raised an impressive total amount for our chosen charities!

In Hassocks we raised £201 and were singing for “Sing For Better Health” and in Brighton it was £372.02 for “Extra Time

We are very lucky to have such generous and supportive audiences and thank you to both choirs for giving SUCH an uplifting performance! A true testament to our incredible hard work over the 12 week terms, we should be very proud.

And a little treat for you all – here is the camera work of one of our Brighton audience members – “We Found Love” filmed at the Clarendon Centre..

As a community choir we know how important singing is for your happiness, health and for making friends with other people in your community. For this reason its always interesting to hear about ways that singing has been used in the past.

In parts of Scandinavia, the amazing practice of Kulning has been used for centuries to herd cattle on the mountains. You can read more about Kulning HERE

Here is an example of the hauntingly beautiful Kulning, what an amazing high range! It just goes to show that singing can be as useful as it is beautiful to listen to.
