About Us

A touring American Barbershop Chorus provided the inspiration to form the Great Western Chorus way back in 1974. We then became a founder member of the British Association of Barbershop Singers [BABS].

With emphasis on performance we sing songs across a very wide musical spectrum: contemporary, classical, country, unforgettable showstoppers and inspirational/sacred music… all a cappella.

We are proud to have been national Chorus Champions no less than 10 times [most recently in 2017]. Indeed, we have never been out of the top five. We were honoured to represent the UK 3 times in the World Chorus Championships; California [2009], Missouri [2011] and Orlando Florida [2018].

Our reputation for entertainment has garnered us performances at The Royal Albert Hall [twice], the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, The London Coliseum, The Barbican, The Royal Festival Hall and more locally at the Colston Hall in Bristol.

Can YOU sing?

Probably "Yes" - most people can! If you'd like to hear us, find out a bit more, or even join us, you can just turn up at a rehearsal - see our Join Us page
