The Choir That Rocks

Thursday, 23 June 2011, 9:00PM – 10:00PM

In the second episode of The Choir That Rocks, Rock Choir founder Caroline Redman Lusher goes on a 28 day tour of all her choirs. From Edinburgh to Bournemouth, Rock Choir members are singing from the same song sheet and moving in perfect harmony. Caroline is desperate for her 8,500 rock choir members to take part in the biggest concert Rock Choir has ever put on – she’s booked Wembley arena and needs to fill it! 

Tom George, leader of Teen Rock Choir has been given the job of getting his choir up to scratch for a major performance at Guildford. Aged from 11 to 22 years of age it’s a tough job getting the teens to emotionally connect with their songs which include Boys and Girls, Use Somebody and You Got The Love. 

At the teen concert Caroline will decide whether they are good enough to get the chance to perform on the main stage at Wembley in front of the Rock Choir members, friends and family. 

One of the teen choir members who particularly stands out is Rachel O’Brien. Convinced Rachel is a star of the future, Caroline decides to bring top record producer Nick Patrick to the performance where he will see Rachel perform and decide if she has a good enough voice to record her solo on the album. 

However, there is one thing that potentially stands in the way of Rachel’s dream. She has Vasovagal syndrome, which means she can faint at any time, particularly if she is under too much pressure. Will she manage to remain calm and get her chance to go to the Abbey Road Studios to record her solo? And will the teen choir be good enough to appear on stage at Wembley?
