Katy Seath, the Rock Choir Leader in Chiswick, along with Rock Choir Founder, Caroline Redman Lusher and her 80-strong vocal group, stole the show on a recent Saturday night with their spectacular performances at BBC Proms in the Park, in London’s Hyde Park.

Taking part in the event were local individuals who attend weekly Rock Choir rehearsals and who were invited by the BBC to travel to Hyde Park and surprise the 40,000-strong audience and National viewing public.

Caroline and her group opened the event and also collaborated with Michael Ball, Josh Groban and Albert Hammond. They additionally led a stirring and nostalgic Last Night of the Proms style flag-waving and crowd sing-a-long finale!

Katy, West London Rock Choir leader said, “I’m so proud of my choirs. Everyone came together and performed perfectly in what was a historic and high-profile event created by the BBC. Some of my members haven’t been singing in Rock Choir for long but had the time of their lives. It’s left all of us on a huge high!”

The big surprise of the evening was undoubtedly the 10,000+ Rock Choir Members from all over the country, including High Wycombe, Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross who had made the journey to London to support Caroline and local Rock Choir leader Katy on stage.

They spectacularly flash-mobbed the 40,000-strong audience during their first number, ‘Dancing in the Street’; each one of them revealing their Rock Choir uniform t-shirts and dancing enthusiastically in the process. Already holding three Guinness Records, this is thought to be the world’s largest ever organised singing flash-mob!
