Fun and energy from a choir for all

THE Rock ‘n’ Soul Choir will have you bopping along to their Motown hits, classic Australian songs and rock and pop numbers when they take to the stage at the Dig 1100 Concert.

The choir will perform this Australia Day at Parramatta Park from 6.45pm and will sing crowd favourites including the national anthem samba-style with Barry Morgan from the TV show Spicks and Specks.

Director of the choir Susie Loh says audiences can expect a fun and energetic performance.

‘‘As our name suggests we are a rock and soul choir,’’ she said.

‘‘We will perform songs with an Australian flavour and many iconic Australian songs. We go on stage to have fun.’’

The Rock ‘n Soul Choir is a Sister Act-style choir who sing songs from Motown as well as rock and pop tunes from the 1960s and 1970s through to the present day.

The choir has more than 100 members from all parts of Sydney and there are no auditions, no singing pressures and no need to have a perfect voice.

‘‘We are not like a conventional choir as we don’t have auditions for members,’’ Ms Loh said.

‘‘We have all ages, genders and sizes in the group.

‘‘We have great singers to singers who would never want to be in the front row.

‘‘We have people from different jobs like doctors, teachers, lawyers, nurses and students all come together to make up the Rock ‘n’ Soul Choir family."
