Coro Nuovo - A Leading Sussex Choir
A Leading Sussex Choir
Welcome to Sussex choir Coro Nuovo! We are an exciting and versatile choir that performs a wide range of music from the Renaissance to Contemporary. Our talented choir consists of experienced singers from Sussex and the surrounding area, some of whom are professional musicians. We hold concerts in the Spring, Summer, and at Christmas, showcasing our passion for music.
As a not-for-profit choir, we are proud to have established an outreach programme since 2016. We are passionate about supporting the musical talent in Sussex, which is why we founded and run the annual Sussex Young Musician Competition. This competition offers bursary prizes to young musicians in Sussex who are studying music and are at the beginning of their professional career, both choral and instrumental.
At Coro Nuovo, we are dedicated to creating a community that loves and supports music and we hope you join us in our mission to inspire and nurture musical talent in Sussex!

Coro Nuovo – What does it mean and how do I say it?
We often get asked how to pronounce Coro Nuovo and what does it mean?
Coro Nuovo is Italian for New Choir.
Why did we choose this name? We are different from many other choirs because each time we sing it’s a different mix of singers, a completely different programme of music and a different location. This may be more challenging for the choir, but it’s great for audiences.
We asked an Italian friend to record how she would say Coro Nuovo so have a quick listen by clicking the audio link below. However, as long our singers enjoy rehearsing and performing concerts and our audiences like listening to us, please pronounce Coro Nuovo in the way that works for you!
