GEM Connection


Who ARE GEM Connection?

GEM Connection Barbershop Chorus (GEM stands for Great East Midlands) was founded in May 1998 by 23 enthusiastic female singers. Since then the chorus has grown and now has over 60 members.

The chorus performs at a variety of events in the East Midlands, where we are based. We support both local and regional Music Festivals and community events and have also taken our music to Wales, Germany, Holland, Buffalo in New York State, and Tuscany, performing on shows and competitions with other singing groups and musicians.
