The RockNRoll Chorus, America’s most high-energy teenage
a cappella rock show, is casting up and loading out for its fourth ‘East Coast’ tour - this year adding the cities of Cleveland, Chicago, Indianapolis, Nashville, and Atlanta to the tour! In August 2007, the debut CD, “What They Didn’t Teach Us In School” received immediate attention. Then “Take A Second Look”, in 2008, garnered critical acclaim from audiences, music educators and music industry agencies. Now, “Rounding 3rd” RNRC’s latest release is testing the boundaries of what can be accomplished on stage through the power of the human voice! The RockNRoll Chorus has entertained and amazed audiences of all ages at venues that include the PNC Bank Arts Center (Holmdel, NJ), Pier Village (Long Branch, NJ), Beach Street, Live Nation (Virginia Beach, VA), Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World (Orlando, FL), Charleston Music Hall (Charleston, SC), Inner Harbor Amphitheater (Baltimore, MD), Convention Hall (Asbury Park, NJ), Sovereign Bank Arena (Trenton, NJ), Bryant Park (New York, NY), Rockefeller Plaza (New York, NY), Hard Rock Café (Atlantic City, NJ and Atlanta, GA), Broadway at the Beach (Myrtle Beach, SC), House of Blues (Myrtle Beach, SC), NJPAC and The Prudential Center (Newark, NJ), MTV on the show TRL (New York, NY), as well as New Jersey’s famed The Stone Pony (Asbury Park)! The RockNRoll Chorus continues to enjoy rapid and sustained growth from a grass-roots project three years ago to the unexpected fast track towards commercial media success! Acceptance and praise by communities of trained musicians across multiple genres and styles of music continues to be one of the greatest highlights of achievement for The RockNRoll Chorus! Live radio airplay, promotional events, national television (The Daily Buzz) and many charitable performances balance out well-rounded show seasons providing memorable performances for audiences of all ages, shapes and sizes, as well as for The RockNRoll Chorus cast and staff. An in-store promotional appearance in Orlando’s Virgin Megastore (Downtown Disney) created a stir as more than one hundred unsuspecting customers ‘rushed’ the front of the store to catch a glimpse of the unique and penetrating energy performed the way only The RockNRoll Chorus can! Photographs, vacation videos and autographs followed!
The RockNRoll Chorus maintains a powerhouse cast of some of the best high school singers from all over New Jersey and beyond. The group comes together to learn about the music business, recording, touring, performance skills and entertainment production all through the vehicle of high quality rock and pop music – music they would not ordinarily be able to experience in their high school music programs. Emphasis is placed on high production values, music business etiquette, music theory, ear training, vocal breathing skills, excellent forward placement, musicianship skills, healthy body maintenance, time management and interpersonal communication skills. The goal of the music is to create performances that resemble the original recordings of some of the most important hits of the past several decades. Once the competitive audition is complete, these young adults, instead of going away to ‘summer camp,’ go into intense rehearsals, record at the professional level, prepare a promotional campaign, shoot video and go on tour. It is a fantastic blend of professional and educational experiences that, according to these amazing young adults, have created valuable relationships and friendships that will last a lifetime! Gary Jones, President of Full Sail University (Orlando, FL), says of The RockNRoll Chorus, “This is what rock and roll music will sound like in Heaven!”
