About London Gay Symphonic Winds
The London Gay Symphonic Winds are London's only symphonic wind band from and for the LGBT communities in London. Their musical aim is to be both fun and challenging. They want to encourage improving musicianship in an enjoyable and supporting environment. They play a wide variety of music to suit their diversity, including band classics, orchestral arrangements, show tunes, and, of course, the odd bit of Abba and Madonna.
