The goal of this team is to be creative and unique, and above all else, to provide excellent entertainment to the audience!
Although C.G.C. has hosted shows and performed at numerous local venues in and around their hometown of Collingwood, Ontario, they are brand new to competition and are so excited to be involved with Show Choir Canada for the first time!
