We are the best choir in the Gooi region'. That winged statement has been going around for decades among the members of the Groot Omroepkoor. It is an ironic understatement for the only professional broadcasting choir in Europe. You might say it is the Formula 1 of broadcasting choirs. Oswin Schneeweisz delved into the remarkable history of the Groot Omroepkoor. 75 years GOK: 75 years in which the Groot Omroepkoor has developed into a vital company with its own identity. A unique company with a large dose of adventurous spirit for the future, an eye for the present and respect for the past.
