What Voice Part am I?

We have a saying “Any octave, any gender” but usually…

Very high > Soprano (W); High > Alto (W&M); Lower > Tenor (W&M); Very low > Bass (M).

Our Workshops can help you decide too. We don’t mind if you buy a ticket then change voice part during the rehearsal.

We are absolutely delighted that Peggy Seeger, the Radio 2 Award winner for Best Original Song for Swim to the Star, supports Brighton Sings. Peggy says:

“Every song a gem, hopeful and inclusive. Everyone singing every one of the songs.  Every pound made donated to charity. The start of a trend that will spread to everywhere. Heart-warmers: the concept, the songs, the singers.”  Peggy Seeger
