Latest news from the choir

Date announced for our Centenary Celebration Concert!

With Centenary Celebrations forced to stay on hold for the first part of this year, it is wonderful now to announce our first concert of 2021!  This will be on Saturday 18 September in St Andrew's Church, Burgess Hill. The programme is a popular one - with arias and choruses from some of our best-loved operas. Expect Aida, La Traviata, Carmen and more. See our Concerts page for more information. 

Rehearsals start 5 July

We're delighted that in-person rehearsals for our very special Centenary Celebration Concert will start on Monday 5 July.    For anyone new to Sussex Chorus, you can find much more information about singing with us on the Membership page, but this is the information everyone will need to know:

Rehearsals will be at the usual venue, St Paul's Catholic College, Jane Murray Way, Burgess Hill, RH15 8GA, will start promptly at 7.15 and finish at 9.30pm. We rehearse in the large, well-ventilated, main hall, there is plenty of parking and we always take a short half-time break.  

Our new Director of Music, Stephen Anthony Brown will be leading us with Jeremy Weaver accompanying on piano. More about both Stephen and Jeremy here

Covid secure rehearsals

In line with government guidance and before rehearsals commence, Sussex Chorus committee will be undertaking a comprehensive risk assessment and putting in place strong risk mitigation measures.  These will be shared with choir members before rehearsals start.

We monitor and respond to all relevant announcements and updates from government and, as members of national organisation Making Music, we are able to follow their regularly updated information and work with their resources which are designed specifically for amateur music groups.
