"The GBCC is an invaluable source of networking in our music community. Members of the Consortium can call each other for problem solving, creating collaborations, sharing ideas, and receiving support. It's a great way to build a sense of community. Hearing someone say, 'I've been there, too, and you'll get through it!' really helps developing choruses."
