A very warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting our website.
Concentus means ‘agreement’, ‘harmony’ or ‘unity’ and this defines the very spirit of the choir. Adrian White, our Musical Director strives to ensure that harmony exists not just in the musical notes that are sung but also in the way that choir members are cared for. Adrian and the members committee work hard to ensure that Concentus truly are ‘Eastbourne’s choir with a heart!’
What does Concentus sing? Well a little bit of everything! From Faure’s Requiem and pieces from The Messiah to toe tapping medleys from Phantom and Queen. We have learnt how to sweetly sing lullabies and when required ‘belt out’ amazing harmonies with complicated rhythms; an arrangement of ‘Seventy Six Trombones’ being just one of them! We sing sad songs of ‘Going Home’ and joyful songs of ‘Joyful Joyful’. We sing carols at Christmas and funnies about what happens ‘Twelve Days After Christmas’. We sing together (currently over 90 members), in mid groups, small groups and solo. We have sung on Eastbourne’s bandstand, at the Town Hall, at the Station, at St Wilfred’s, on The Pier, on the pitch at Twickenham, in a curry restaurant, in pubs, in The Arndale shopping centre and on the streets of Eastbourne. We have had highly energetic Sing-A-Longs (with picnics) performing Grease, The Sound of Music and South Pacific to name but a few! We have sung in France and in Germany. We are always in the market for new vocal challenges and exciting venues. We don’t do boring!!
