“Rock Choir has become the biggest National Cultural Movement of the decade!” - Sunday Times Magazine

Caroline Redman Lusher’s Special BBC Proms In The Park performance on 8th September 2018 & New Single: ‘Hallelujah’ Release Date: 7th September, 2018,


On 8th September 2018, vocalist and founder Caroline Redman Lusher and her amazingly talented 80-strong Rock Choir Vocal Group will perform to an audience of 40,000 for the opening of BBC’s Proms In The Park, hosted by Michael Ball.

Rock Choir will share the evening with a star-studded musical line-up including Grammy Award winner Gladys Knight, 80’ pop icons Lisa Stansfield and Matt Goss, Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja and American operative star Josh Groban. Live on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Television, Caroline and her team will be entertaining millions of listeners and viewers at this iconic great British sing-a-long.

Amongst the choir’s performances will be their new single, a brand new version of the Leonard Cohen classic ‘Hallelujah’.

CAROLINE REDMAN LUSHER is a successful singer, recording artist, award winning musician, composer, arranger, dynamic entrepreneur and the founder and musical director of Rock Choir. She is also an award winning business woman and subject of the hugely popular 2011 ITV1 Documentary series, The Choir That Rocks.

Caroline founded Rock Choir in 2005 and through her musicianship, creativity and inspirational leadership has developed it into the world’s largest contemporary choir in excess of 28,000 members.

Caroline has brought contemporary community singing to the masses and has inspired tens of thousands of the general public to take part in Rock Choir each week through her unique vocal arrangements of carefully chosen feel-good pop songs.

Caroline’s Rock Choir was the first of its kind to offer the public a glamorous fun and accessible form of singing. Its popularity has spread across the country affecting communities and individuals alike with an exciting outcome of friendship, confidence and a happier way of life for everyone involved. Dramatic improvements to health and well-being are a prolific outcome for its members who in turn spread their new found confidence and joy into the rest of their lives.

As Rock Choir continues to grow Caroline protects its original ethos of inclusivity, accessibility and fun. She also gathers like-minded talented musicians to help her introduce Rock Choir to new communities. These Rock Choir Leaders enjoy an exciting and satisfying career and are supported by Caroline in their creative endeavour both in and out of their role in Rock Choir. With over 80 Rock Choir Leaders in the team they have naturally become a highly impressive ambassador-choir for the brand.

“Rock Choir founder Caroline Redman Lusher led her flock into Wembley Arena for the big performance which, by sheer force of feel-good will, booted non-believers into touch and sold the Rock Choir dream as the harmonious embodiment of the Big Society ideal.”
