Who might like our choir

The Choir is open to all backgrounds and singing levels and you can join any time. Knowledge of Russian is not essential but non-Russian speakers would be expected to have some interest in learning about Russian culture. Sheet music is made available with Cyrillic text, transliterations for non-Russian speakers, and translations. Music is taught by ear with sheet music and also with language pronunciation. Ability to follow musical notation is preferable as we use SATB scores.


We meet in a central Brighton venue served by many buses and only 10 minutes walk from Brighton Station.

Please contact the choir administrator for details (see below).


We meet weekly on most Tuesday evenings, with summer and winter breaks plus occasional performances.  From mid-September 2021 our times are now 6-8pm.


First ‘taster’ session  £5.  Members join on the basis of a block of sessions of between 5 and 10 sessions, payable in advance, and based on £7 per session.

  1. Hi Polina

    I so much enjoyed your concert last Saturday with Judith.

    I would love to join your Russian choir but as I sing with another choir on Mondays, and I have committed to performing with them at Whispering Woods and the urban version after, it wont be till November’ish. I will contact you nearer the time.

    Singing in Russian would put me way outside my comfort zone, which is where I like to be (some of the time)!

    Thanks again for sharing your musical talent with us.

    Kind regards
