Music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins has announced the official launch of a new partnership with Rock Choir.
Together Nordoff Robbins and Rock Choir are bidding to offer individuals, families and communities a musical platform that improves their quality of life. Caroline Redman Lusher, creator and musical director of Rock Choir, has become an official ambassador for Nordoff Robbins as part of the link-up.
Redman Lusher 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.
Nordoff Robbins CEO Julie Whelan 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 with the launch of Caroline Redman Lusher and The Rock Choir Vocal Group’s Christmas single The First Noel/ Silent Night, on December 14, which raises funds for Nordoff Robbins’ music therapy.
