Join Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus (BrightonGMC) for our new members evening on Tuesday 7th January 2020 at 7:30pm at the Brighton Unitarian Church on New Road, Brighton.
The Chorus is a friendly and diverse group of all ages, from their 20s to their 70s. We provide a fun, creative environment dedicated to singing, socialising and support. We are open to all and all we ask is that you self-identify as male and are LGBTQ friendly.
Led by Chorus Director Joe Paxton and his team of music professionals, we sing a varied repertoire including pop and musical theatre as well as some classical pieces. We sing in four sections: First Tenor, Second Tenor, Baritone and Bass and we create harmonies up to 8 voices parts. We are always on the lookout for lower ‘Bass’ or higher ‘First Tenor’ singing voices, but all others are welcome too.
Some of our members have previous music experience and some do not. You don’t need to be able to read music to join the Chorus since we provide online recordings of all our songs to help you learn. We are a community choir at heart and you don’t need to pass an audition to join and support is provided to help less-experienced singers find their voice.
We asked some of our recent new members about their experience of joining Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus and they told us:
Since joining BrightonGMC I’ve felt more connected with my community, more confident in myself as a gay man and just had a tremendously enjoyable time.
Joining the BrightonGMC has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made – great social circle, and excellent musical and vocal training from our well-respected music team. A respectful, safe and cheerful space and well-loved and spoken of in the public sphere. BrightonGMC is an experience worth having.
I’d been looking to join a choir for some time and it’s been a fantastic experience so far – 3 memorable concerts – all quite different – and a performance on the fabulous BrightonGMC float at Pride. Unforgettable so far, for sure!
