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.
