The Brighton & Hove Russian Choir promotes a wide range of music from Russia. Original arrangements by the choir leader include traditional lyrical and epic songs, ritual calendar music for pagan holidays, wedding songs, dance songs and other folklore. Another part of the repertoire is Art Songs (Romances) from the 18th-19th centuries (much loved by native Russians). as well as classical pieces by Russian composers. We perform several times a year at various festivals and events and also present our own concerts. As well as local performances we also participate in occasional events in London and the south-east.

The choir is not affiliated with any political, ideological or religious body. We promote culture, music, peace, unity and building bridges through singing. 

Everything is sung in Russian but we carefully translate the texts and talk about the history and context of each piece. Cyrillic script, transliteration and translations are all available as well as musical scores. The group brings together music lovers of all backgrounds and singing levels with or without any knowledge of Russian language and culture.
