WEYMOUTH Pavilion was rocking to the sounds of a local choir at a charity performance.

More than 200 singers from the Rock Choir took to the stage to perform a range of classic and contemporary hits to raise funds for Julia’s House children’s hospice.

Choir leader Stacey Hobday, who runs weekly sessions in Bridport, Dorchester, Weymouth and Poole, said she was thrilled with the reception her choir members got from the audience.

She said: “They outdid themselves.

“The reaction from the audience was fantastic – it was a really interactive show as the audience joined in for one of the songs.”

Stacey’s choirs were joined by Jan Moll’s groups from Chandlers Ford, Fareham, Meon Valley, Portsmouth and Winchester.

Rock Choir is the country’s largest contemporary choir with more than 16,000 members across 300 local communities.

There are no auditions to join and no requirements to read music or have any previous experience.
