So who runs Sussex Chorus? As a charity, we manage our affairs through a committee of Trustees, elected by the members. When you join the choir, you automatically become a member and so also have opportunities to contribute your views and ideas. But the choir is so much more than its committee! Many dedicated and skilled people ensure that concerts run smoothly, music scores are hired, soloists booked and refreshments provided. This voluntary support is invaluable of course and also gives those individuals experience in running events.
We pride ourselves on bringing high quality choral music to the local communities in and around Mid-Sussex. Reasonable ticket prices (significantly reduced for young people), accessible venues and a wide repertoire ensure that local people can enjoy great classical music on their doorstep. We are very grateful to both Mid Sussex District Council and Burgess Hill Town Council for their support.
In the recent past, we've hugely enjoyed bringing local young people into our performances. A choir of Burgess Hill primary school children provided the 'street children's' choir for Carmina Burana and Hurst Prep Choir joined us for John Rutter's Mass of the Children.
