The Rainbow Chorus is the largest non-audition LGBT choir in the South outside of London. We are based in Brighton & Hove and have been celebrating diversity through music since 1997. We welcome people from all sections of our community.

We offer an enjoyable, supportive and affirming environment for LGBT members to sing, develop their community spirit and awareness, and enable individuals to develop their talents, skills and confidence.

Through public performance, we enhance the profile of LGBT people, particularly in Brighton and Hove, and contribute to the quality and range of community events. We believe that singing at events such as World Aids Day and Transgender Day of Remembrance sends a clear message that we are out and proud and all different. As part of our commitment to the local community, we also support other charities by singing to help them raise funds. For the last 2 years we have sung Christmas carols in support of Brighton Housing Trust’s Big Christmas Street Collection, to help the homeless. In 2017 they raised a total of £5208.

Anyone who identifies as LGBT is welcome to join us; you don’t need to audition, you just need to want to sing! However there is an expectation that you can sing in tune.

We are supported and inspired by a fantastic music team – our talented Musical Director Aneesa Chaudhry and Mojca Monti on piano.

Rainbow Chorus is a member of Legato, the umbrella organisation for lesbian and gay choirs in Europe.
