Rock Choir - Fun, Up-Beat Singing For All

Rock Choir is the South Eastís only pop, gospel and Motown performance choir. It attracts all ages and all levels of experience. Most individuals who join have not sung in public before and in taking part, they develop self-confidence, new skills and enjoy fun, up-beat rehearsals and a huge sense of fulfilment after each performance.
Rehearsals take place in Weybridge, Chobham, Guildford, Godalming and Farnham Surrey over three, ten-week terms leading to a variety of events and performances.
Rock Choir is split into three age groups: Rock Choir Juniors for ages 6-10, Rock Choir Young Adults for ages 10-21 and Rock Choir Adults. They each rehearse at various times each week.
Rock Choir has a large and loyal membership and is very popular with a huge fan base and support from local media, charities and organisations.

"We perform everything from old classics like Build Me Up Buttercup to Amy Winehouse songs and at the moment we are doing Material Girl by Madonna which has quite a complicated routine. "
ďMembers range from GPS to head mistresss but what is so great is that they are equal while they are in that room singing. It is a space in peopleís lives that they can escape too. There are no auditions to judge if they are good enough; the pressure is on me to train them.Ē  - Caroline Lusher

About Rock Choir

Rock Choir was founded by Caroline Lusher in 2001 when she taught A-Level performing Arts at Farnborough 6th Form College. She initiated the idea to help her class of students gain confidence in singing and performance.

Choir Leader - Caroline Lusher, founder and director of Rock Choir who was a finalist in Surrey

Carolineís in-depth background and experience in performance and composition allowed her to create an unusual and dynamic new performance group in the style of a choir as well as finding a positive and unique way to communicate with her students. The Rock Choir grew rapidly attracting nearly 170 teenage students at the college as it became a popular enrichment activity.
Caroline then left the college and offered Rock Choir to the general public creating a business package that would enable her to work with a large number of choirs full-time. Caroline musically arranges and choreographs all the pop, gospel and motown songs that the Rock Choir performs and teaches each choir separately over the thirty- week schedule.
The Rock Choir has achieved a fantastic reputation and is well known for its up-beat and feel-good performances. Carolineís primary objective is to support her members and make sure they experience a sense of fulfilment and improvement in confidence. She believes that everyone should be able to enjoy singing and performance and be part of something special. Local media, businesses, organisations, charities and MPs all agree that Rock Choir as something fantastic for the community.
