We were so proud last year to celebrate 100 years of making music in Sussex! The choir has a fascinating history, dating right back to members of Ditchling WI meeting regularly to sing at each other's houses. Thirty years later it became known as the ‘Ditchling Choral Society’, men had become members and now, 100 years on, we are a mixed voice choir with a great reputation. We can look back on some wonderful times - of concerts, conductors, overseas trips and celebrations - and have significant plans in place for the future.
Whether you're an experienced musician or it's a while since you sung or played, you will be very warmly welcomed by Sussex Chorus.
Two Open Rehearsals are planned for 5 and 12 September where you can try us out as we begin rehearsing for the November concert. There's no charge for this and scores are provided free for these two rehearsals.
Support from Friends and Sponsors allows the choir to maintain an ambitious programme of great choral works, planning ahead with confidence while keeping ticket prices at a reasonable level for our local community. We offer several benefits as a thank you!
