With no audition and no previous choir experience required, Rock Chorus offers you an opportunity to be part of a vibrant, lively community of singers. Every voice counts here at Rock Chorus and you can rock with us too!
Rock Chorus was formed in 2009 by acclaimed singer/songwriter Lauren Field. She now has around 300 members across five choirs in Pinner, Dunstable, Berkhamsted, Milton Keynes and Northwood Hills.
Rock Chorus rehearse once a week in each location and the choirs come together for concerts and charity performances. Rock Chorus have appeared at The Tring Festival, The Waterside Festival at Milton Keynes, The Pepper Rock Concert in Berkhamsted, the Woburn Oyster Festival and at Strictly Come Hospice in Watford Colosseum in aid of the Watford Peace Hospice, to name but a few. We have also appeared on several TV and radio programmes for the BBC, ITV and Sky 1.
For 9 years running we have performed to sell out audiences at the Stantonbury Theatre and The Venue in Milton Keynes raising over £40,000 for the Bletchley Lions Club charities. Our concerts dates just keep on coming and we are in demand across all of our areas throughout the year. We are now a regular fixture at the Ideal Home Christmas Exhibition and this Christmas holiday was a well needed break after an extremely busy term of Christmas performances and our now legendary Rock Chorus Christmas parties!
Rock Chorus has recorded two original singles, "This is our Time," written by Lauren Field and Charles Foskett and "A Million Souls" written by Lauren Field, Charles Foskett and Brian Bennett (The Shadows). In April Rock Chorus recorded their new song at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
Rock Chorus headlined and produced its own charity concert, headlining a Concert to an audience of 1000, and with guest stars Mungo Jerry, Osibisa, Alvin Stardust, Tight Fit and Voices with Soul, raising £15,000 for the McMillan Cancer Unit at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.
As part of our ten year celebration we will be putting on a concert at the Watersmeet Theatre in Rickmansworth. We hope that all members will get involved as Every Voice Counts at Rock Chorus!
'Singing is one of the strongest glues for encouraging positive community development, and is a great way to make new friends'
You don't have to audition to be part of Rock Chorus; you don't even have to be an accomplished singer. The most commonly heard worry at the start of term is 'I don't know if I can sing or what I can sing!' Most people quickly find that their voice strengthens and develops as they rehearse and before long you'll be happily settled in a section of the choir that suits your range.
Belting out great tunes with people who will rapidly become your friends is one of the greatest pleasures of being part of Rock Chorus! You don't even have to read music - All of the songs we rehearse are available for you to download from our website so you can practice at home between rehearsals. Sign up on the register page.
Rock Chorus perform frequently and mainly for charity based events - so being out there giving something back is very important to us!
We run eleven week terms, three terms per year and charge a termly subscription of £105 which can also be paid monthly at £26.25 per month. The cost includes as well as the weekly rehearsals all our social events and live concerts and access to the member's area of the website where you can download all our songs in your range to help you. Also - as a member you can go to as many of the Rock Chorus sessions as you wish across the group.
