Local Rock Choir tour with award-winning vocal group Sons Of Pitches

The UK’s largest, contemporary choir, Rock Choir, have been invited as special guests by award winning British vocal group, Sons of Pitches, to embark on their UK summer tour on Saturday 10 June at City Hall, Salisbury.

Sons of Pitches became the first winners of BBC2’s The Naked Choir in 2010, hosted by Gareth Malone, where their soaring solos, impeccable harmonies and stunning beatboxing, mixed with a large dose of comedy, proved to be huge hit with the viewing public.

Local Rock Choir leader, Charlotte Jones said, “We’re all really excited to be supporting the SOP boys on their tour. They’re so talented and the show is packed with fabulous A Capella vocals. It really promises to be a great show.”

Charlotte runs fun, weekly rehearsals in Christchurch, Ringwood, Romsey and Salisbury. There are no auditions and no requirements to read music or have any previous singing experience.

Rock Choir members get together each week to attend fun, friendly rehearsals where they are taught specially chosen pop and chart songs. There are lots of exciting performance opportunities throughout the year and many of them help raise money for charity.

Rock Choir is the UK’s largest contemporary choir, with more than 25,000 members in over 360 local communities. Rock Choir offers its members, once in a lifetime experiences, from recording sessions at the iconic Abbey Road Studios, to touring with well-known celebrities such as X Factor winner, Sam Bailey, English Tenor, Russell Watson and one-off celebrity performances with the likes of singer-songwriters, Chesney Hawkes, Toyah Willcox, Kim Wilde and Kiki Dee.

Rock Choir is much more than a choir – it’s a multi layered singing experience. The power of music, meeting new friends and performing at life changing events, together contribute to an emotional and powerful journey for our members.

Rock Choir’s uplifting ethos of fun, friendship and community spirit is a huge part of its attraction. At an individual level, it helps improve people’s self-confidence, enables them to develop new singing skills, and enjoy a dynamic new social life.

Singing together and achieving such a great sound gives members a huge sense of fulfilment. Added to this is the glamour and excitement of performing in public, which for many is a truly liberating experience.
