Rock Choir is the pioneering contemporary choir of the UK and remains unique with over 20,000, members


enjoying it across the UK. Each member is welcomed into the Rock Choir family and their journey  allows
music, friendship and a new found confidence to impact their everyday lives.

As a new member, you may choose to simply rehearse with your friends or take to the stage and join them at a variety of Rock Choir events and shows- it’s up to you. You can take as much or as little from the experiences on offer. You’ll never have to sing on your own or be under any pressure.

Tuesdays 8pm from 17th January
