Rock Choir is monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak and the impact it is having on us all. We are doing everything we can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our Members and the Rock Choir Team. As we all know, isolation can impact our general and mental health so we at Rock Choir are doing everything we can to continue to offer the Rock Choir Experience to all of our Members and also the British public for the duration of this crisis as follows:
• CONTACTING US
The Rock Choir Team is working from home which means that our phone lines are now paused until further notice. However, you can still stay in touch with us via email: email@example.com
• ROCK CHOIR HAS MOVED ONLINE FOR THE SUMMER AND AUTUMN 2020!
Our Choir Leaders have been teaching all of our Members from their homes for the entire 12-week summer term in conjunction with lockdown. Our autumn term schedule begins in the week starting Monday 14th September and we are planning many new and exciting events alongside our virtual teaching programme. We will be following government advice and guidelines as to when and how we can regroup in physical rehearsals. In the meantime we are busy working on events for the summer months of July/August/September. More information will be available shortly. New Members are very welcome to join us for the new autumn term by clicking on the Join Us button (at the top of this page).
• ENGAGE WITH ROCK CHOIR!
Rock Choir has been engaging with the British Public and its Members on a daily basis during its ‘Keep Britain Singing’ event inviting everyone and anyone to join a live singing session every day at 3pm on Facebook where our talented Choir Leaders
have lead everyone through a different feel-good song every day to lift the spirits. As we come to an end after 106 days we are introducing a new online engaging activity every Friday as from 10th July 2020 featuring music, singing and a different theme each week. To take part please go to facebook.com/therockchoir to join us! No Facebook account is needed to be able to join in.
• THE MENTAL HEALTH FOUNDATION
To support Mental Health Awareness Week in May 2020 the Rock Choir Team created a 24-hour virtual fundraiser to raise funds and awareness for The Mental Health Foundation offering ‘Rock Choir 24’ which featured back to back music, singing and activities from the Rock Choir Team to engage both the Membership and the British public. Many celebrities took part including Sir Cliff Richard, Clare Balding OBE, Michael Ball, Jools Holland, Jess Glynne and Aled Jones as well as many others. Over £45,000 was raised and Rock Choir will continue to support The Mental Health Foundation during lockdown and beyond.
· THANK YOU!
We will continue to update our website with further information as we progress through this period of adjustment but in the meantime, a MASSIVE thank you to the thousands of loyal Rockies (Rock Choir Members) who are continuing to support us as we move forward with our summer rehearsals online. You are extremely kind and generous and we are very grateful to you all! Please stay safe, stay home, save lives.
