This was our first visit from Castle Cary Choir and the concert was well attended. Many of the attendees asked for the choir to come back again next year! Music at GMC would like to thank all concerned and we are very grateful to the Choir and to Andrew for giving up their time to perform for us.

Castle Cary Choir was founded in 1965 and is a mixed voice ensemble of about 50 members who present a varied programme of sacred and secular, folk, spiritual and modern music. The Choir gives five to six concerts a year, locally, to help groups raise money for charities and good causes.
They are an amateur choir and rely upon member's subscriptions and donations for funds.
The Choir is affiliated to the National Federation of Music Societies which represents and supports amateur societies throughout the UK.

Andrew Fawbert began playing the cornet at the age of 5 with his local colliery band in Derbyshire, moving on to the euphonium at 10 years old. He became the Junior and Senior Euphonium Champion of Great Britain in 1969, 1972 and 1973. He joined the BBC Radio Orchestra in London for 4 years after studying at the Birmingham Conservatoire. Since then, Andrew has worked in every sphere of the music industry, appearing with all major symphony and opera orchestras. He has many film credits to his name including the Wallace and Gromit films.
Andrew decided on a big career change and took up the position of head of brass at Sherborne School for Boys.
Amazingly he still finds time to perform at the highest level whilst also continuing to fulfil his commitments as professor at the Royal College of Music and the Birmingham Conservatoire.
