Starting The Brighton Xmas Lights Switch-on With a Bop – Meet We Bop Women’s Choir!

Say hello to the women starting the festive celebrations!

We’re thrilled that Brighton women’s choir We Bop will be starting the festive party at next week’s Christmas lights switch-on event – getting us all in the celebratory mood!

We Bop Choir was formed in 2008 by Musical Director, Rachel Myer with just 16 members. Now almost a decade on, they have 70 singers, aged between 30-70 – with 40 of them performing at the Christmas lights switch-on.

We’ve heard that the amazing choir will be premiering a brand new arrangement of ‘Sing It Back’ by Moloko, written for the choir by Rachel Myer, so start warming those vocal chords and get ready to join in!

When asked why the choir wanted to be part of this year’s festive celebrations, which is organised by Brilliant Brighton in association with Chestnut Tree House, children’s hospice and Juice 107.2, Musical Director, Rachel Myer told us: “We are local women who love to sing and be involved in community events. We also like to raise money for Sussex charities.”

We Bop will be performing at Brighton’s Christmas lights switch-on 2017 in East Street, from 5pm on Thursday 16th November! Hope to see you there!
