BREMF Education

BREMF is about much more than just concerts. Outside the Festival we run three choirs (see the BREMF ensembles section for more information), and our schools programme reaches over 1200 children each year in Brighton & Hove Schools.

We would particularly encourage music students who are really serious about their singing to audition for BREMF Consort of Voices. See the BREMF Ensembles section for more information. If you’re aged between 11 and 16, why not consider joining the Brighton Festival Youth Choir?
