GLOW! Brighton’s Community Choir for LGBTQ+ people and Allies!
Songs From Around the World, Taught By Ear! All Voices Welcome!
New Term Starts Saturday 10th February 2018.
Unique amongst the many choirs in Brighton, GLOW Choir is a Natural Voice choir for LGBTQ+ people & Allies to unite in song. ALL voices are welcome, without exception! There is no policing of sexuality, gender or race at GLOW, and no discrimination will be tolerated. We do our best to accommodate any specific needs that disabled choir members may have, and people of ALL levels of musical experience and ability are very welcome to join in.
We sing a wide range of songs in many moods and genres from across the globe, all taught by ear. Once a term GLOW has a sharing/concert, and at least 50% of the profits from this are donated to relevant charities. In recent term’s, GLOW has raised impressive amounts of money for Brighton & Hove LGBT Switchboard, and MindOut! This term’s charity is yet to be decided…
Whilst many participants enjoy performing at the End of Term Sharing, there is no obligation to perform if you just want to come and enjoy the sessions. The main focus of GLOW choir is the participants’ enjoyment, the support of the community, and the experience of a jolly good group sing in an encouraging environment.
Choir leader Hannah-Rose Tristram has been leading choirs and teaching singing for over a decade, and has travelled the world in pursuit of great music for a cappella voices. This term’s Musical Menu may include a Bosnian love song; a Bulgarian Orthodox song; a Taize song for peace; moving and uplifting songs by Natural Voice “greats” Ali Burns, Dee Jarlett, Nick Prater and Helen Yeomans; an invitation to “walk a mile in my shoes” by Rebecca Spalding; and a whole host of other surprises!
