Brighton Consort, as with much of the amateur and professional music world, has been unable to perform recently.
However we are now aiming to resume live rehearsals from May 19th - subject to there being no setbacks in the timetable for the easing of lockdown restrictions.
It is highly likely that these rehearsals will initially need to be held under strict Covid-19 conditions, including 2 metre distancing.
We hope that these rehearsals will then enable us to fix a target date for a public performance (possibly later in the summer or very early in the autumn).
The programme will be the Seven Degrees of Separation repertoire (music by Byrd, Tallis, Clemens non Papa, Josquin, Palestrina, Victoria and others) that we began working on almost year ago!
It is likely that whenever this performance happens it will still need to be organized with social distancing for both choir and audience..
If you are interested in joining Brighton Consort for these rehearsals and the performance please contact the Chairman, Mike Clemens (
). We currently have vacancies in all voice parts.
And 2021 will be our 50th anniversary, so watch this space for a celebration!
