Caroline Redman Lusher 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. She is a successful singer, recording artist, award-winning musician, composer, arranger, dynamic entrepreneur and musical director of the choir. She is also an award-winning business woman and subject of the hugely popular 2011 ITV documentary series, The Choir That Rocks.
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.
From its humble beginnings in 2005 Rock Choir now rehearses in over 400 communities country-wide. They boast 3 Guinness World Records, 2 x Top 20 albums and a 3-part ITV documentary series. The have sold our performances at Wembley Arena, The London O2 and the NEC Genting Arena. It is more than just a choir – it offers its members a new way of life using music, friendship and education at its core. Members report a dramatic uplift in their mood which in turn impacts their lives and relationships; those using anti-depressants often reduce or come off them completely; those with cancer use the choir as a motivation and a support often aiming for events and shows as landmark recovery dates in their diaries; those who have lost loved ones use the choir to regain some balance and make new friends; those who might be lonely reengage with life and find themselves on trips away and other exciting events unleashing a new way of life.
