20th March 2014
For immediate release.
Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus are to reunite with best-selling British tenor Russell Watson at Brighton Dome on 10th April, whom they first met during the BBC show “Last Choir Standing”. Russell, as one of the shows judges, famously fought to keep the Chorus in the game as they competed against acclaimed welsh male choir “Only Men Aloud” who went on to win the show.
Russell Watson said:
“If the guys want to come and join me we’ll do a number on stage together… I’m absolutely serious, that would be fantastic.”
Adam Betteridge, a trustee for Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus, said:
“Last Choir Standing was a turning point in our development as a choir and as a charity. I’m sure I am not alone in remembering back then how moving it was to hear Russell so passionately fight to keep our Chorus in the competition. I could hardly believe my ears when I got the call telling me that he had personally asked for us to join him on stage at the Brighton Dome!”

Their next show “Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus: Nautical But Nice” will take place as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival on May 2nd & 3rd at St George’s Church in Kemptown, Brighton. Tickets and info will be available via their website www.brightongmc.org soon.
