SOTCC at Paddle Round the Pier Festival


Our first performance of the Summer is nearly upon us – the weekend of the 5th/6th July sees Soul of the City Choir performing at the fabulous beach festival Paddle Round The Pier! We’ll be on at 11am both days so please pop along and see us if you can! An event run by volunteers and all proceeds going to charity, Paddle is a fantastic opportunity to raise money for good deeds whilst seeing some fab acts.

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..



New Term Dates and Free Tasters


Our Spring Concerts are just around the corner and we are so excited!

Soon after the choir will be open to new members again and we can’t wait to start all over again and meet some new soulful singers.

Brighton Choir will be starting back on Tuesday 22nd April, and we will be running tasters on the 22nd, 29th April and 6th May.

Hassocks Choir will be starting back on Wednesday 23rd April and there will be tasters on the 23rd, 30th April and 7th May.

We can’t wait!



All Male or All Female choirs?


At Soul of the City Choir we’re proud to be a mixed choir. But the trend for all male or all female choirs is definitely booming, with acts like Only Men Aloud.

Here are two famous examples:


Which do you prefer? (not that it should be a competition)

Or maybe you think they should both just mix it up a bit!
