Coro Nuovo History

Coro Nuovo was started in 2012 by Catherine Kent and Andrew Rees.  It is a choir of about 50 singers who are looking to sing something other than the large familiar choral works. It consists of top singers from top choirs in and around Sussex.  The choir meets occasionally – no weekly note-bashing – when they experiment with smaller works which have a subtlety of content, harmony and expression.

The Director of Music is Andrew Rees. His intention as Music Director is to bring a new depth and awareness of music which is refreshing and exciting for the singers. He is most interested in the sound we make and the technique for getting there.
