GBRT encourages people of all ages to become involved in music regardless of their musical experience and background. We run five community choirs and ensembles for adults and young people with over 150 members who bring their enthusiasm and willingness to work as part of a team to every rehearsal. We don’t hold auditions and keep entry requirements as broad as possible.
GBRT’s choirs and ensembles perform regularly in our local area and further afield. Some have taken part in concert tours to Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy, performing at amazing venues such as the Menin Gate in Ypres, the Town Hall in Leuven, Villa Foscarini Rossi in Venice and Marksburg Castle overlooking the Rhine in Germany. We also organise workshops and day and weekend trips in the UK.
