Marple High Peak Rock Choir

Do you live in the Marple area or the High Peak? Do you fancy taking part in a free Rock Choir session?

Rock Choir, the UK’s largest contemporary choir, is inviting local people to enjoy a chance to boost their natural high and beat the winter blues this January by taking part in a free 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 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.

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.

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.

Local Rock Choir Members from Marple, New Mills and other North West towns recently performed at Manchester Cathedral and helped raise awareness and much-needed funds for Prevent Breast Cancer.
