PREVIEW: Sing for Water, Brighton Sonorous Solidarity in Action!

Besi Besemar July 3, 2019

Hullabaloo Quire announces charity gig Sing for Water, Brighton, on Thursday, July 18 at St George’s Church, Brighton.

INSPIRED by the annual event Sing for Water, London РHullabaloo Quire are bringing this important fixture of choral activist’s calendars to Brighton for the first time.

The choir will be joined onstage by Brighton Vox, Dawn Chorus, RiSing and Zu Choir and will perform a repertoire of a cappella treats from across the globe.

This year’s Sing for Water repertoire, chosen by co-director of Sing for Water Roxane Smith and conductor Katie Rose, is magical and uplifting and includes Georgian, Roma, Rwandan and South African songs.

Hullabaloo Quire, Brighton Vox, Dawn Chorus and Zu Choir will also be performing their own sets which will include tracks from Fleetwood Mac, The Beetles and Hair.

Hullabaloo hope that this will be their third sell-out show in as many years with all profits from the gig going to the charity Water Aid. Their last two sell-out shows were a collaboration with O’Hooley & Tidow (the folk duo who wrote the Gentleman Jack theme tune) and a gig with folk activist Grace Petrie.

Hullabaloo Quire meets weekly during school term at Brighton Girls School and anyone who is keen to be part of a singing community is very welcome. There are no auditions and no need for members to be able to read music.

The choir sing songs from a varied repertoire, everything from pop to folk, world music to original pieces, and perform at the end of each term in venues around the city.

Hullabaloo is the perfect choir for those looking for choral adventures alongside community activism.
