Grand Central Chorus in concert

The Long Eaton-based Grand Central Chorus is representing the United Kingdom at the International Barbershop Convention, Toronto, Canada, in July this year, as a result of winning the National Championship in 2012.

To help fund this endeavour, the chorus is organising various activities.

The concert is to take place at 7.30pm on the 20th April, 2013 in the Emmanuel Church, Forest Road, Loughborough.

Also appearing will be the chorus quartets Grand Dads and Homespun, featuring a Dad and his three lads.

MC for the evening will be Des Bates, a well-known local presenter and raconteur.

Tickets are £8 from Peter on 01530 243912, Chris on 01509 646506 or you can e-mail publicity.gcc@gmail.com
