About the Event

Glyndebourne and Create Music are pleased to invite local schools from the East Sussex and Brighton area to sing with members of the Glyndebourne Sinfonia and the Glyndebourne Chorus, led by Glyndebourne Chorus Master Aidan Oliver.

School groups have been rehearsing in preparation and will come together at one of four live singing events in the world-class Glyndebourne auditorium to share festive songs and music with friends and families in the audience.

Following the success of One Voice in 2022, the project is expanding to seven concerts in December this year. As well as four performances at Glyndebourne there will be other One Voice events taking place at the Brighton Centre and at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill.
