We’re currently working on our audio/video project SkySongs, in rehearsal for our multi-media SkySong gig in July!

Our theme this term is Flight – kites, banners, birds, gods and goddesses, stars and clouds…the sky’s the limit. Our choral director Kirsty Martin has collaborated with author and fellow singer Juliet Desailly to write us our very own special song-story piece, inspired by the Horniman Museum’s kite collection and world mythology. There is also a Raise the Roof Flight Medley.

In general, Raise the Roof meets every Thursday during term time and drop-in sessions are available throughout.

Come and sing songs from jazz to gospel, from old crooners to contemporary pop, from cultures across the world.

We welcome everyone. We learn by ear and sing from the soles of our feet!

Raise the Roof is led by Kirsty Martin, a Choral Activist and MD for Hullabaloo Community Quire in Brighton. She is a prolific composer and arranger for community choirs, and travels extensively to share her infectious and joyful funkysoulybluesyfolky vocal vision with singers nationwide!
