Here is a quote about the role from one of our choir leaders – “I started working with Rock Choir in 2007 and I am so glad that I did. I spend my week teaching amazing communities how to sing in harmony in a really fabulous and safe environment. My favourite moment of every session is watching a choir sing through a section of a song in harmony, with full confidence and watch their faces when they hear how amazing they sound! I have been with Rock Choir for 16 years and I am looking forward to what the future brings.” Sam Smith (Surrey Rock Choir Leader)
