Hot on the tails of our 2008 Silver Medal winning performance at National Competition, GEM Connection competed as first-timers in the European Barbershop Convention.  In May, GEM had a successful day’s competition at Derby Arts Festival, winning the Ladies Barbershop section and coming joint first in the Concert Class along with the Dale Divas. In September 2009, our joint show with The Grand Central Chorus and medal winning guests The Jazz Firm, Monkey Magic (now The Great British Barbershop Boys) and Miss Demeanour was a huge success. GEM got their highest ever marks at Convention in October, and in November, won the Barbershop class and were the overall winners of the Selston Music Festival, gaining 90 marks out of 100.
