New Sussex Singers

We are a premier chamber choir based in Sussex, United Kingdom. Each year we perform in a number of public and private concerts, generally in the South of England. We have also undertaken overseas tours to Europe and the USA. We rehearse weekly in either Haywards Heath or Lewes.

New Sussex Singers appoint new Music Director

ALEX ROOSE was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. He read European Languages and History at The Australian National University and Music at the University of Melbourne. Since moving to Britain in 2007 he has enjoyed a busy and varied performing career, primarily as a choral and solo singer.

As a student was Assistant Director of Music at St Paul’s Church, Manuka and co-founded the chamber opera company Tuckerbox Opera. He went on to appear as guest conductor with the Victorian Youth Symphony Orchestra and directed a number of choral and instrumental concerts.

In 2013 he moved to Sussex and has been engaged from time to time as assistant chorus master of the Brighton Festival Chorus. Local singing engagements have included solo appearances for the Brighton Fringe Festival, Steyning Musical Society, Eastbourne Choral Society and St Anne’s Lunchtime recitals.

In 2016 Alex will be directing a performance of The Hubble Cantata for the Brighton Science Festival.
