Brighton Consort

Brighton Consort was formed in 1971 and is well known for its ambitious exploration of the rich repertoire of renaissance and early baroque music. Its Musical Directors over the last 20 years have included Deborah Roberts, Katie Thomas and James Dixon. Brighton Consort presents four or five concerts a year in Brighton and the surrounding area. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings (7.30-10pm) at St George's Church, Kemptown. Rehearsals take place throughout the year (with a break during late July and August). In addition we help to further knowledge of renaissance and early baroque music by running occasional workshops, which are led by some of the U.K.'s greatest experts on the repertoire. Entry for new Members involves first getting in touch with us on Our Musical Director, Greg Skidmore, will get in touch with you to discuss your choral experience and tell you a little bit more about the choir and what we're looking for. We'll then invite you to one of our rehearsals and discuss whether you'd like to join on a permanent basis. Prospective singers should have a good voice that will blend well with the ensemble, reasonable sight reading skills and be willing to put in work on the music between rehearsals.
