/ A New Rock Choir is coming to Ramsgate!
If you like singing in the shower and your school choir days are just a sweet memory, then here’s your chance join the UK’s favourite contemporary community choir!
Rock Choir is the hugely successful contemporary singing phenomenon that has been rolled out across the UK, with more than 30,000 members in over 400 local communities nationwide - and it will soon be available in Ramsgate!
The popular choir will be welcoming new members when rehearsals start at Ramsgate Arts Primary School on Wednesday 18th September (8pm). The choir offers adults and teenagers the chance to sing and perform popular contemporary songs, with no auditions and no requirements to read music or have any previous singing experience. Rock Choir is for anyone who just loves to sing!
Catherine Courtley, the local Rock Choir leader said:
“I’m really excited to be opening a new Rock Choir in Ramsgate! We’ve had a very busy morning choir in Margate since 2011 and lots of people have been asking for an evening session in Thanet ever since.
“As well as running our upbeat, fun and friendly weekly rehearsals I’m looking forward to getting involved with lots of events and supporting local charities - as well offering all the exciting once-in-a-lifetime opportunities we’re known for.
In the last few years Catherine’s choirs have sung at Abbey Road, Disneyland, Notre-Dame, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and next week will be singing at the BBC Proms in the Park event in Hyde Park for the second year running.
More locally, East Kent Rock Choirs have also performed at The Colyer-Fergusson Concert Hall, Canterbury Cathedral and have flash-mobbed Westwood Cross to raise money for charity on several occasions.
New members may choose to simply rehearse with their friends at their weekly rehearsal or take to the stage and join them at a variety of Rock Choir events and shows.
Rock Choir always welcomes new members to attend a free taster session. There’s no audition and no requirement to read music. Just visit www.rockchoir.com
