Being part of GCS has given me some of the most lasting and worthwhile friendships I have known.

Questions often asked are

  • Do I need to be able to sight-read music?
    Well, some sight-reading skills are needed or you could just spend some time learning the choruses before you come.
  • Do I need to audition?
    Absolutely not.
  • Is there a dress code?
    Again no, all very informal. Jimjams if you fancy, just come along and enjoy.
