The Stourbridge group started in September 2012 and has performed at many local events including the Stourbridge Christmas Lights Switch-On as well as larger scale national events. Highlights have included a performance at Wembley Stadium in front of 65,000 people and joining thousands of other Rock Choir members at Liverpool Echo Arena for Rock Choir Live. In July 2014 we will be putting on our own summer concert at Birmingham's Symphony Hall with a special celebrity guest!
Rock Choir is the UK's original and largest amateur contemporary choir. It was set up in 2005 by musician Caroline Redman Lusher, who wanted to reignite people's joy of singing and give them a fun, life-enhancing experience, and now many just can’t get enough of it. Unlike traditional choirs, there are no auditions and no need to read music or have any previous musical experience. Rock Choir is the contemporary choir for people who just want to sing.
Rock Choir's feel good repertoire features specially arranged songs by artists as diverse as Adele, Queen, The Bee Gees and Bruno Mars.
Rock Choir has released two popular albums and made many TV appearances, including the Paul O'Grady Show, BBC Breakfast and The One Show. It was also the subject of the 2011 three-part ITV1 documentary 'The Choir That Rocks' and has won three Guinness World Records.
Rock Choir's uplifting ethos of fun, friendship and community spirit is a huge part of its attraction. It helps improve people's self-confidence, and gives people new singing skills, a dynamic new social life and a great sense of fulfilment.
