In the choirs strong tradition of inclusiveness, BSL interpreter Marco Nardi will interpret each song, and the performance will feature some songs performed by the Chorus in Sign Supported English.
The choir will themselves be crossing borders this summer, as they take a trip to Amsterdam where they have been chosen to take part at the International Choir Festival during the Euro Pride celebrationsa huge honour, and a mark of their growing reputation.
So let the Souths only LGBT choir (outside of London) transport you around the world this June what better time to extend the hand of friendship and solidarity to our brothers and sisters across the globe? Join us at St Georges Church, Kemptown on Saturday 25th June at 7.30 pm. Tickets (£14/£10 concessions/£7 children under 12)also available at www.rainbowchorus.org.uk or contact choir members directly. They're aiming for a sell out so book early to avoid disappointment and join the chorus for an evening of Songs Without Borders.
Following a recent award from the Rainbow Fund the chorus have also established a monthly singing group RC+ - for those wishing to develop their confidence and play a part in the full chorus programme. Participant Marina Llamas Barco said 'these sessions are great to develop my confidence and raise my game to play a full part in the chorus. They are a great stepping stone.'
Musical Director Aneesa Chaudhry said that the sessions are aimed at anyone who wants to join the chorus, not everyone can commit to a weekly rehearsal, so it's a great way to keep in touch. New singers, particularly members from the Trans community are finding them a supportive space to find their voice.
The Rainbow Chorus are living up to their motto of 'strength in harmony!'
