All the pleasures of singing with others combined with the joy of visiting wonderful places!
In 2023, Hidden Gems offer unique holidays in two amazing historic locations - Surbiton and Brussels
On joining one of our holidays you become part of unique Hidden Gems Choir, singing every day in a relaxed, friendly environment.
You will be trained by our inspiring vocal coaches, Jeremy Avis and Rebecca Askew, who have both performed worldwide. Their approach is inclusive and fun and between them they have many years of experience of creating memorable musical occasions for all ages and abilities.
Both are qualified singing teachers with years of experience and genuine knowledge of the anatomy and function of the voice, so your own singing skills will improve with the help of their thoughtfully planned sessions.
You will also have a wonderful location at your feet to explore; Hidden Gems trips to date have taken place in Rome, Bath, Bristol and Lewes.
You will soon find your self singing in some of the delightful corners of each place, while enjoying the history and stories shared by our professional tour guides.
You will learn an exciting and varied mix of songs, hand-picked and arranged especially by Rebecca and Jeremy to be fun yet challenging and to suit a variety of tastes. The repertoire also features original compositions by our two talented tutors. All music is taught by ear, so you don't have to be able to read music or have any previous experience.
