“Wonderful Choir in Brighton lead by a wonderfully upbeat, dynamic and talented director!”

“I love singing. I feel very joyful, the collective and the unity of singing together. Natural voice immediately brings you into that place where you’re just singing from you heart, that’s what I like about this choir”

“Brailla is so encouraging and such a delight it really gives one confidence working with her. Thanks to her enthusiasm and leadership I was carried along.”

“I really like it, I find it very uplifting spending time together singing, and everyone’s just putting out their sound in a natural way, it’s very happy, everybody is smiling and enjoying themselves.”

“It’s restorative, if you’re tired and go to choir, you come back rejuvenated.”

“I really enjoy Brailla’s choice of songs”

“It’s nice to work with somebody who wants to work towards a concert, it gives you a great focus”
