The Choir

Brighton Chamber Choir was formed in 1990 and exists to "promote, improve, develop and maintain public education ... of ... choral music." The reputation of the choir has been increasing steadily over the years and it performs unaccompanied, with organ and with chamber orchestra and takes part in The Brighton Festival Fringe each May.

The choir performs at various venues in Sussex and has performed live on Classic FM.

The annual garden party

Each July, Tim and Jane hold a garden party and fundraiser for the choir at their home in Pyecombe at the foot of the beautiful South Downs. BCC members and their families and friends are warmly invited and asked to bring a contribution to a buffet lunch.

Bric a brac stalls and a tombola provide an opportunity to re-cycle all manner of items as well as raising funds. Its chief value lies in its social aspect as children can explore the garden while choir members can make friends, enjoy a drink and a well-earned holiday from the busy schedule.
