Rock Choir was responsible for the phenomenon of popular contemporary chorale singing and its Founder, Caroline Redman Lusher, is identified as responsible for “changing the musical landscape of the country…” Guy Fletcher, Chairman of the PRS. “….By creating Rock Choir in 2005 it has dramatically helped the British public improve their well-being and mental health by creating joy with the power of group-singing, friendship and support.”
Caroline’s ethos of making contemporary singing accessible and bringing communities and individuals together coupled with her expertise as both a performer and teacher allowed her to develop a unique teaching formula allowing Rock Choir to have a strong educational backbone at the same time as making the performance experience as glamorous as possible for the Member.
The concept of nurturing amateur singers and leading them to experience the thrill of performance in a wide variety of arenas has attracted tens of thousands of the British public to take part.
