GHS & RGS Tour

This was the third joint band tour since 2014 and, this year, 60 players and three solo singers - who sang with the Swing Band - enjoyed a week on the coast, just south of Barcelona. There were four very well attended outdoor evening concerts in Salou, Barcelona, Cunit and Calafell with an extraordinarily high standard of playing, often prompting audience members to leave their seats and dance! There was plenty of time to relax and explore the wider area during the days; pupils and staff enjoyed the hotel pool and local beach, as well as excursions to Montserrat, Tarragona, Gerona and Barcelona. Highlights included a tour of Gaudi’s famous Sagrada Familia and the cable car ride to reach the monastery and Basilica at Montserrat. The musicians were wonderful ambassadors for GHS and RGS, receiving widespread admiration at concerts. Congratulations to everyone involved.
