Les Miserables Vocal Workshop January 4th 2020

What a great way to start the new year and the new century!  200 singers came together in Newton Abbot with one thing on their mind - The amazing music from Les Miserables!  The enormous choir was made up of rock choir members from all Devon and Cornwall and we also welcomed a large number of singers from other choirs as well as people who just fancied to start the new year with a good sing!  It was amazing!  It was emotional!  It was so uplifting!  Richard arranged bespoke versions of the hits 'I dreamed a dream', 'Bring him home', 'Castle on a cloud' and 'At the end of the day'.  The choir rose to the challenge as we knew they would!  There were many many beautiful musical vocal moments in the three and a bit hours we spent together.  We sang, we laughed and we cried together.  Les Miserables Vocal Workshop 2020 was a huge success!  What shall we do next time?

Rock Choir Rocks Cockington!

On Sunday 9th December 140 Rockies from Torquay, Plymouth, Saltash, Newton Abbot and Teignmouth rock choirs braved the elements to sing at the annual Christmas fayre.  Although the sun was shining we had fun doing our choreography in the mud!  The large audience had a smashing afternoon and complimented us on our amazing singing and enthusiasm.  Thanks rockies for another memorable gig.  You all clearly enjoy singing together and having fun times!
