Welcome to The Really Big Chorus!

Introducing TRBC, or The Really Big Chorus to give us our full name. We are the UK’s largest choral society, promoting grand-scale concerts at the Royal Albert Hall plus singing holidays and cruises arranged in association with Specialised Travel Concert Touring Ltd.

Our choral programme is open to anyone who can sing (no audition needed) and you will be warmly welcomed at any of our events.
