We All Live Together

A Concert for World AIDS Day

Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus presents

an evening of music & mulled wine, featuring:


Brighton-based Qukulele are the UK's first queer uke band. Layered harmonies, ukulele pluckin' and strummin' are delivered from a sea of Hawaiian shirts. We love performing any song that makes people happy, especially if we can mash it up into another! "Qukulele, the ukulele band who bring a smile to everyone's face."

Rainbow Chorus

Based in Brighton & Hove, The Rainbow Chorus is the South's only non-audition LGBT choir, celebrating diversity through music. Inspired by our talented MD, Aneesa Chaudhry, we have a great time singing and performing a wide range of musical genres to a high standard. We welcome new members.

Rainbow Chorus
Resound Male Voices

Founded during the spring of 2011, Resound is a male voice ensemble based in Brighton & Hove. Now 14 strong, we have built up a wide repertoire, from baroque to pop. Our goal is to stay a small ensemble, with a focus on interesting and challenging repertoire and finding our own unique style.

The Theatre Workshop Choir

Launched in October 2009, the Choir is made up of over 50 students from Theatre Workshop schools across Sussex who show particular talent for Singing. The Theatre Workshop is renowned for its strong vocal training and the Choir really shows this off!
