We begin our 2023-24 season with a carol concert at St George's Church, Kemptown, our usual rehearsal venue. We're delighted to be joining their church choir to sing familiar Christmas music as part of a fundraising event for the Friends of Brighton & Hove Hospitals. This will take place on Wednesday, 13 December 2023.
Details of this event are still not finalised and more information will be available soon. Please bookmark our Next Concert page to keep up to date.
The first Brighton Consort concert of our 2023-24 season will take place in January 2024 and is entitled:
Double or Nothing: Renaissance Music for double choir
We are giving two performances of this programme which will include a range of music, all for double-choir forces:
- Sunday, 21 January 2024
- Saturday, 27 January 2024.

Brighton Consort presents four or five concerts each year in Brighton and the surrounding area. 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.
Our musical director, Greg Skidmore, was appointed in August 2021 to succeed James Dixon.
Greg is well known as an expert in the interpretation of Renaissance vocal music and he has a high profile as a performer with prestigious groups such as The Tallis Scholars, I Fagiolini, The Sixteen, Ex Cathedra, Alamire, Tenebrae, and Contrapunctus. He brings to the choir a wealth of experience and great ideas for our future.
At this important stage in the development of Brighton Consort the choir is keen to recruit new members with a love for this style of music. Anyone interested is invited to email us on email@example.com for more details. We currently have vacancies in all voice parts.
