Welcome to the website of The Dawn Chorus, Brighton and Shoreham’s morning community choirs. We meet in Prestonville, near Seven Dials, on Friday mornings and in Shoreham-by-Sea on Thursday mornings.

Come and be uplifted by the joy of harmony singing in an informal, friendly and fun group where the emphasis is on singing for pleasure.

Whether folky or funky, frivolous or serious, all songs are taught in a warm and encouraging atmosphere. They are from a broad selection of musical traditions from all around the world.

All you need to bring is your voice and the desire to sing. Everyone is welcome – confident, tentative and ‘non’ singers alike. No note-reading, no auditions!

“Absolutely delightful! Julie has a great talent for making a disparate group of people feel relaxed & thus able to sing in harmony – amazing.”    Jane, The Dawn Chorus

“Singing together is simply the best, most powerful way to make friendships and build lasting communities.”    Natural Voice Practitioner’s Network

“When you sing with a group of people, you learn how to subsume yourself into a group consciousness because a capella singing is all about the immersion of the self into the community. That’s one of the great feelings – to stop being me for a little while and to become us. That way lies empathy, the great social virtue.”   Brian Eno
