One hundred Rock Choir members, including some from Milngavie, took to the steps of the Glasgow Royal Concert Halls as part of the Big Big Sing event, in support of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games last Tuesday.

Milngavie’s Rock Choir leader, Jennifer Sim, said “It was such a hot day but the members entertained the sweltering crowd with up-tempo, feel-good songs such as the aptly named, ELO favourite ‘Mr Blue Sky’.”

Event organiser Katharine Barrington said: “It was such a great performance. I received some great feedback from people watching.”

Rock Choir is the UK’s largest contemporary choir, with more than 16,000 members in over 300 local communities. There are no auditions and no requirements to read music or have any previous singing experience.

Members get together each week to attend fun, friendly rehearsals where they are taught specially arranged pop and rock songs. There are lots of exciting performances throughout the year and many of them help raise money for charity.
