If you love singing and fancy making sweet harmonies to a Beatles track, Rock Choir’s fun summer singing workshop is for you.
Run by local Rock Choir leader Jennie Harwood, half-day sessions take place on Sunday, July 26, at Trowell Parish Hall, from 11am-2pm, and August 15, at Osmaston Park, Derby, from 11am-2pm.

“There’s no need to read music or have any previous singing experience and you won’t be expected to sing on your own,” explained Jennie.
“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 will 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 Derby, Belper, Beeston/Nottingham, West Bridgford and Mansfield Rock Choir,” says Jennie. “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!”
