Thu, 13/12/2018

We’re delighted to announce the official launch of our brand-new partnership with Rock Choir, which will see our organisations working together to reach even more people with the life-changing power of music across the UK.

In-line with the partnership launch, Caroline Redman Lusher, Creator and Musical Director of Rock Choir, will become an official ambassador for Nordoff Robbins, and will be committed to supporting and raising awareness for our charity in her new role.

At Nordoff Robbins, we celebrate the connection and joy music can bring to those with life-limiting illnesses, physical disabilities and emotional challenges. With over 30,000 members, Rock Choir champions the power of music, and creates an emotional and powerful journey for members and audiences alike. Our decision to partner with Rock Choir is rooted in our shared belief that music creates joy, and together Nordoff Robbins and Rock Choir offer individuals, families and communities a musical platform that improves their quality of life and in turn positively impacts their health, their mental well-being and the relationships with those around them. 

Caroline Redman Lusher, Creator and Musical Director of Rock Choir said: “Both Nordoff Robbins and Rock Choir understand just how important it is for everyone to access music as therapy and the synergy between our two much-loved organisations is obvious to all. We are thrilled to partner with Nordoff Robbins and support their work, help raise awareness and much-needed funds so they can support more individuals in need. They have very much become part of the Rock Choir family already! Being invited to become an Ambassador for Nordoff Robbins is an absolute honour and I’m thrilled to become part of their team.”

Julie Whelan, Nordoff Robbins Chief Executive, said: “At Nordoff Robbins we believe in the life-changing power of music, and we are delighted that an organisation who truly share that belief have chosen us as their charity. There is a distinct synergy in our organisations’ objectives to reach more people through music, and Rock Choir’s support will enable us to do just that across the UK. It is a privilege to welcome Caroline into the Nordoff Robbins family – her musicality and creative vision will be vital in helping us raise awareness of our work which will help to support our ultimate, central mission; to make music therapy available to all those who need it.”

The announcement comes a day ahead of the launch of Caroline Redman Lusher and The Rock Choir Vocal Group’s Christmas single The First Noel/ Silent Night, on 14 December, which is raising funds for our life-changing music therapy. The single can be streamed or downloaded on all music platforms including Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
