GWC Show 17 Feb - Guests Announced!

The Great Western Chorus of Bristol are delighted to announce that Signature will be our guests on February 17th 2018 at the Victoria Rooms in Bristol.

Signature are one of the most popular Barbershop and A Cappella acts in the world, having recently returned from the BHS international competition in Las Vegas with a Silver Medal. It is their powerful ballads and popular soul numbers that makes them one of the most talked about acts on the international scene right now.

Signature is composed of four powerhouse voices who have been together since October of 2013. This will be their first ever trip to Europe and they will be performing exclusively on our show in Bristol. We cannot wait to share the stage with them.

EBC 2017

The Great Western Chorus has had a very hard-working 2017, including a fabulous show with Ringmasters and the build up to winning our 10th BABS gold medal in May. We have a busy Christmas schedule and new songs to learn as we work towards another big show in February 2018 (special guests to be announced soon) and our trip to Florida in July.

Concerned about spreading our energy too thinly, we have reluctantly decided not to compete in the European Barbershop convention in Bournemouth at the end of October this year, although we will still, as the current British male chorus champions, proudly perform in the Friday night show at what we know will be a fabulous weekend.
