Our Summer Gig Charity

Jun28

With just over 2 weeks to go till we take to the stage for our end of term summer gig, we are polishing up all our songs for your listening pleasure and we can’t wait to perform them for you!

As you may know, every year we support a new local charity throughout Brighton and Hove and as previously mentioned this term’s charity is the brilliant Brighton and Hove Food Partnership, which puts food at the heart of all they do. They believe growing food, cooking and eating are great ways to improve people’s lives.

Here are a few great things they offer throughout the city -

  • The Community Kitchen – A kitchen and cookery school where people can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food together.
  • Food Poverty Advice – Offering advice and signposting to different organisations throughout the city that can support with accessing food banks, Local Discretionary Fund, access to cooking equipment, eating well on a budget and access to low cost cooking courses.
  • Volunteering - Anyone can get involved by volunteering with one of over 70 community gardens and orchards across the city.
  • Business donations – If you are a food business, event organiser or organisation anticipating a surplus of food that can be safely donated to a food project, then this great charity can help you to do just that!

To get involved or access the charity here is the link to their website – http://bhfood.org.uk/

As you can see a very worthwhile causes that we are supporting at our end of term gigs, so click the links below for tickets and come and help us support their fantastic work while listening to us sing!

A few important things about singing.

May24

I think it is always good to take stock of how good it is to freely sing away till our hearts are content, nothing better!!  However, being part of a choir is not just singing on our own but rather singing collectively with other people and in our case it’s 150 strong; and so there are a few things that are important when it comes to singing in general but more importantly within a choir.

The link below highlights a few important points for us all to ponder over.

We have just passed week 6 and sounding incredible, gearing up for our summer gig and a few other things in the pipeline.  Keep an eye out for announcements in the coming weeks.

We are also pleased to announce that the wonderful Mara Simpson will be supporting us at our summer gig, how exciting!  Tickets will be on sale on 5th June!

 

Rock ‘n’ Roll!

May17

Well our last Choir Extra gig proved to be as brilliant as we thought it would be!  Reef were fantastic and we loved every minute of performing with them, I think we’re all still on a high from it!

Although there was only a small number of us due to venue logistics, we missed the 150 voice sound wall, we still packed a punch and we can’t wait for the next Choir Extra adventure!

A massive thank you to the brilliant Reef for inviting us to perform together!!

Keep and eye and an ear out for upcoming announcements of where we will be performing and how to get tickets!

Rehearsals for our Summer Gig are coming along great, we’re sounding so great and stronger than ever and we can’t wait to perform again at The Old Market!

Reef Extra!

May10

The summer term’s new songs are taking shape beautifully with a stunning arrangement from an old classic that is sounding incredible; it’s going to sound amazing at the gig!  As will all the other songs that we have in store.  We will give some clues in the coming months as to what to expect!

Aside form our main choir we also have Choir Extra where we rub shoulders and sing along side other wonderful singers.  With this Choir Extra escapade we are singing along side the rock-tastic Reef on their sell out gig on Friday 11th May at the Concorde 2 – we simply cannot wait !

Put your hands on, put your hands on, put your hands on, put your…………

Extra Extra, read all about it!

Last Monday we had the greatest honour of singing, not only at the Komedia in Brighton but alongside the wonderfully talented Mara Simspon and her band. The place was packed out and we all sung our hearts out together. It was a very special Night! Mara had the experience recorded and so we will share the footage when we get it.

There is more Choir Extra coming up so keep your eyes peeled for announcements soon!

We’re going into week three of the new summer term of both the regular choir and the brand new afternoon choir.  Both are shaping up to be amazing!

The sun is starting to shine, there’s leaves on the trees and we’re back doing what we love the most- singing; our summer concerts are going to be great!

We’re Back!
