What They Didn't Teach Us in School
The RockNRoll Chorus, America's most exciting new teenage a cappella vocal group, maintains a powerhouse cast of some of the best high school singers from all over New Jersey. In August 2007, their debut CD, "What They Didn't Teach Us In School' was released. The RockNRoll Chorus has entertained and amazed audiences of all ages at venues that include the PNC Bank Arts Center (Holmdel, NJ), The Point Pleasant Boardwalk (Point Pleasant, NJ), Pier Village and Monmouth Park Racetrack (Long Branch, NJ), Street Life for Live Nation (Virginia Beach, VA), Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World (Orlando, FL), Charleston Aquarium (Charleston, SC), Inner Harbor Amphitheater (Baltimore, MD), Convention Hall Beach (Asbury Park, NJ), and Riverside Gardens (Red Bank, NJ), as well as many of New Jersey's famed county fairs! In addition, the 2007-08 Winter Cast embarked on a holiday tour at prestigious NY-NJ venues that include: NJ PAC, Prudential Center, Atlantic City, NJ., Bryant Park, NYC., Rockefeller Center, NYC., TRL studios, NYC., etc. The RockNRoll Chorus comes together to learn about the music business, recording, touring, performance skills and entertainment production all through the vehicle of 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 is to create music that resembles 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,' record a CD, shoot a 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!
