A Rock Choir group in Northampton is holding a summer singing workshop for people who love ‘making sweet harmonies to a classic Beatles track’.

Run by local Rock Choir Leader Jessica Hunting, the half-day session takes place on Saturday August 22, at Sunley Conference Centre, Northampton, from 10am to 1pm.

“There’s no need to read music or have any previous singing experience and you won’t be expected to sing on your own,” said Jessica.

“The workshop is open to all ages and abilities, and is set to have you singing all summer long. We’ve held summer sessions before for Rock Choir members, but this time thought we’d invite the public as well. We’re hoping lots of people come along to sing and have fun.”

Rock Choir is the UK’s largest contemporary choir with more than 17,000 members across the country. The uplifting ethos of fun, friendship and community spirit is a huge part of its attraction.

Every year, Rock Choir performances help raise tens of thousands of pounds for charity, and its members also get fantastic opportunities to perform at world-class venues such as the 02, Royal Albert Hall and Wembley Arena. This year for example, Rock Choir is supporting both G4 and Russell Watson on their UK-wide tours. In June, Rock Choir members celebrated their 10th anniversary by getting together for a celebratory concert at the NEC, Birmingham.

“We welcome new members and there are lots of great events in the pipeline for Higham Ferrers, Market Harborough, Northampton and Towcester Rock Choir,” says Jessica. “But we never put any pressure on people to perform. Having said that, once people have gained confidence and learned the songs they usually can’t wait to get on stage!”
