Choir offers free places for young people across the city

Gary Hart January 30, 2019

Many under 35’s in Brighton and Hove are facing the toughest conditions to live and work in the city for many years.

HIGH rents, impossible house prices, significant political and economic changes on the horizon, major environmental issues in the headlines daily, long commutes on expensive trains…. the list goes on and on.

To help remedy this, the Hullabaloo Community Quire is offering free places to young people across Brighton and Hove to join them this term when their repertoire centres around beautiful protest songs calling for and demanding political change and social justice.

Working with activist folk singer, Grace Petrie, who recently sold out Brighton’s Komedia, it is the ideal opportunity to get angry and shout about all those things wrong in the world today, find solace, create beautiful harmony and benefit from the many positives that singing in a group brings.

Grace’s music strikes a chord with young people, many of whom are currently suffering the effects of austerity and prejudice. Her most recent track Black Tie is furiously funny, lively, loving, and hopeful. It’s an anthem to the positive, life-changing possibilities of protest songs.

Grace says: “My job is to remind people that there are others who share their vision for society and share their passion for making it a better place.” 

Free places to young adults who are financially disadvantaged are offered on a first come first served basis.

If you feel strongly about making an impact in today’s society, are angry and want your voice heard or want to meet new people in the city, then join the Hullabaloo Quire for it’s Protest Term!

Hullabaloo is a totally open access choir. No experience is necessary, and there is no need to be able to read music. Everyone is more than welcome to attend!
