Rock Choir Visit U's

23 February 2013

Hear their songs at Saturday's game.

National singing phenomenon Rock Choir brings its own special feel good factor to Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium, with a special performance by around 100 Colchester Rock Choir members, conducted by Daniel Ribbits. 

Rock Choir is the UK's largest contemporary choir, with more than 16,000 members rehearsing in over 240 towns across the UK – including Colchester, Witham, Braintree and Sudbury.

It was formed in 2005, by singer and musician Caroline Redman Lusher, to help reignite people's joy of singing, and give them a fun, life enhancing experience. 

Rock Choir is for everyone. Unlike more traditional choirs and choral societies there are no auditions, and no need to read music or have any previous singing experience.

It’s been called "The People's Choir" by national press, and it’s easy to understand why. The energy, joy and professionalism of performances is exceptional – and infectious.

Audiences can't stop themselves singing along to Rock Choir's feel good repertoire of specially arranged contemporary classics, such as 'Walking on Broken Glass' by Annie Lennox, ELO's 'Mr Blue Sky,' and Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep'.

Rock Choir has two albums under its belt. In 2010, 'Rock Choir Vol. 1' went straight to number 1 in the Amazon charts, entering the top 20 in the UK album charts. 

The second album, 'Rock Choir Deluxe', was released alongside the popular ITV1 documentary, 'The Choir That Rocks'.

This three part prime-time TV programme featured the build up to Rock Choir's biggest show so far, at Wembley Arena. Numerous other TV performances include The One Show, BBC Breakfast and The Paul O’Grady Show.

Rock Choir has also achieved three Guinness World Records; 'The largest musical act to release an album (signed)', 'The biggest hit act in the UK', and 'The largest song and dance routine across multiple venues'.

Rock Choir's uplifting ethos of fun, friendship and community spirit is a huge part of its attraction. At an individual level, it helps improve people's self-confidence, enables them to develop new singing skills, and enjoy a dynamic new social life.  

Singing together and achieving such a great sound gives members a huge sense of fulfilment. Added to this is the glamour and excitement of performing in public, at events like today's.

Rock Choir also actively supports countless local and national charities, and in 2012 helped raise an incredible £1 million through its performances and social events.
