Passionate about Music!

Coro Nuovo is an exciting Sussex based choir consisting of over 50 advanced singers from top choirs in the South East, some of whom are professional musicians.  The choir was formed for people who wish to sing a broad range of music, other than the typical choir repertoire of oratorios and masses.  The music selection is designed to be challenging, to help singers learn and develop.

We aim to perform up to three times per year and typically have only four rehearsals for each concert. Our Music Director is Andrew Rees international tenor, who provides us with a focus on delivering quality and subtlety across a broad of range of music rather than simply note bashing!

What makes us different? Coro Nuovo actively supports young musicians – both choral and instrumental – who are at the beginning of their professional careers.  We give them the chance to be involved Coro Nuovo’s productions and concerts. We are also able to offer an annual bursary to young musicians with a Sussex connection to help with their learning and development.
