And we’re back!


Welcome back!

What a great start to our new autumn term with not only our well established Tuesday choir but a brand new Monday choir too!  There are still a few spaces left for the Monday choir so if anyone knows anyone that wants to join a fantastic choir then please get them to sign up here!

We’re off to a flying start with more fantastic songs that Vanessa has arranged for us, we are even moving and clapping on our second week, next there will be full on dance routines (maybe not!).

Last month saw the start of our Pub Choir which was a great success, learning Tainted Love in three part harmony and with our own live guitarist!  It was so good we are going to do it again, keep the 18th of October free as we are getting together again at the North Laine Brewhouse for another night of singing in the pub!

Keep your eyes peeled for tickets very soon!

Choir’s out for summer!


Well there we are, our gig on Sunday has come and gone and now we are on our summer break.  However, rest assured Vanessa is taking the time to make next term and our Christmas concerts just as good, if not better!

This term was as challenging as the last one but what a wonder to perform to all you people that came to see us on the World Cup Final and Wimbledon Final day!  So a big thank you to all that came out to watch and support us!  We had a wonderful time performing for you as did Choir Extra performing with the incredible Mara Simpson; the whole day was simply magical!

We are also pleased to let you know that between you all you managed to raise over £300 for The Brighton and Hove Food Partnership, so a massive well done and thank you from all the guys there and all of us here at the choir!

That takes us on to our next terms!  Yes, plural!  We have two sessions coming up:

Our brand new Monday session – 10th September 6.15pm at St Mary Magdalen’s School, Spring St, Brighton

Plus our usual Tuesday session- 11th September 7.30pm at St Paul’s School, St Nicholas Road, Brighton.

Sign up here on our website or send us an email to [email protected]

Come and join us on either a Monday or Tuesday or indeed both!  Remember that there is a free taster session for all new members to the choir!

From all of us here at Soul of the City Choir, enjoy the sunshine, have a wonderful summer break and we look forward to singing together with you in the next term!


It’s gig time!


So, we are finally here, Sunday is the day of our gig AND the World Cup Final and we know which one is going to be more exciting, hint – the one with the choir!

Our Summer Gig Charity


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 –

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!

We can’t wait to sing for you!



A few important things about singing.


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!


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!
