Rock Choir, the UK’s largest contemporary choir, is inviting members of Macclesfield, Romiley, Marple/New Mills, Saddleworth, Norden & Middleton public a chance to boost their natural high and beat the winter blues this January by taking part in a free Rock Choir session!
With no audition and no need to read music Rock Choir has already attracted nearly 30,000 members nationwide and is recognised as an award-winning national brand. It is considered to be responsible for creating a cultural musical movement offering a unique and glamorous alternative to the traditional choir format. Rock Choir’s uplifting ethos of fun, friendship and community spirit is a huge part of its attraction and its inclusive and accessible teaching approach allows anyone who simply loves pop-music to take part.
Offering this opportunity to everyone in Macclesfield, Romiley, Marple/New Mills, Saddleworth, Norden & Middleton will offer individuals a chance to experience the significant natural high that is created from singing in a group. A recent experiment conducted by BBC’s ‘Trust Me I’m a Doctor’ proved that Rock Choir Members experienced a dramatic rise of 40% in Endocannabinoids, the ‘happy’ chemicals released in our brain, after taking part in a Rock Choir session. This significant result was compared to just 20% up-lift after they had taken part in dancing and cycling and should have a profound effect on the way our well-being and mental health is supported from now on.
Local Rock Choir Leader, Anthony Clegg says, “I regularly receive personal communication from Rock Choir Members who claim that their journey in Rock Choir has improved their lives or helped them in various ways to recover from personal issues and trauma. Rock Choir provides an exciting and life-affirming platform using music at its core and as a whole experience offers joy and friendship. I’m proud that, together with my team, I have built a unique experience that already has such a positive and dramatic effect on so many tens of thousands of the British public! I now want to help transform the well-being of the entire British Public by inviting everyone to step into Rock Choir and enjoy what is on offer; for everyone to feel good, well and happy. No one can escape the challenges that life throws at us but being on a positive, supportive, calm and happy platform will make those moments less painful. Targeting our mental health issues and finding healthy solutions is key and we can offer one solution and that is Rock Choir.”
Local Rock Choir Members from Macclesfield, Romiley, Marple/New Mills, Saddleworth, Norden, Middleton recently performed at Manchester Cathedral and helped raise awareness and much-needed funds for Prevent Breast Cancer. Rock Choir Members are offered a wide-variety of social and performance events and can get involved in as much as they like from the busy Rock Choir calendar! Many Macclesfield ‘Rockies’ travelled to London’s Hyde Park in September to take part in a special BBC/Rock Choir Flash Mob at the iconic Prom’s in the Park. Drawing an audience of 40,000 it was the largest Flash Mob ever witnessed in the UK with over 12,500 Rock Choir Members from across the UK taking part.
Rock Choir recently experienced a No.1 chart position in the iTunes Christmas chart with their contemporary arrangement of The First Noel/Silent Night in aid of Nordoff Robbins.
