Choral Music

Brighton College Choral Music

Singing is at the heart of school life.  Brighton College is rightly proud of its strong choral tradition and the numerous students who have gone on to win choral awards at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

The Chapel Choir leads the singing at the Wednesday morning chapel services and offers all pupils the opportunity to become acquainted with some of the greatest works in the repertoire of scared choral music.

The renowned Brighton College Chamber Choir provides challenging opportunities for more experienced singers.  In recent years the choir has toured Moscow, sang Evensong at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle and recorded two CDs. 

The College's all male Barbershop Choir is a wow with audiences wherever they perform; that has included stages as diverse as the House of Lords, the Brighton Dome and the Moscow Underground.

The College Choral Society is open to all pupils, parents and friends of the College and meets weekly to prepare for two major concerts each year.  These concerts offer exciting opportunities to perform with professional orchestras and soloists. 

Brighton College also holds an annual Choral Day for Prep School pupils.  This has resulted in a combined Prep School Choir performing twice at St John's Smith Square in London.

Brighton College also has a strong tradition of music theatre and a production of a musical usually takes place in the Michaelmas term.  In recent years the College has staged performances of Threepenny Opera, Grease, On The Town, Damn Yankees', Sweet Charity, Guys & Dolls and 42nd Street.  Away from school a Brighton College pupil took part in a recent production of Sweeney Todd staged by the National Youth Music Theatre.
