Rock Choir Members from Bolton, Middleton, Saddleworth and Stockport had an experience of a lifetime last night (Sunday 12th Nov) at the Manchester Opera House, when they were invited to perform with two of the world's greatest classical voices, Aled Jones and Russell Watson, as special guests on their 'Christmas with Russell and Aled' Tour.

Rock Choir Members joined the classical due as the 'official' choir on stage, where they performed new arrangements of some beloved Christmas songs, some of which feature on Russell and Aled's latest album release. The Rockies have been rehearsing around the clock to make sure they were prepared for their gig of a lifetime.

Manchester Opera House was the first night of a 21 date tour. 30 Rock Choir Members were on stage along with their Rock Choir Leader Xander-Jaymes Le Petit, he comments:

"It was a magical night, we were delighted to get the call from Russell and Aled to invite us on their tour and we were proud to be the first Rock Choir in the country to kick off the tour. It was an unforgettable experience and a memory our Rock Choir Members will cherish forever!"

Russell and Aled are back together after a three-year hiatus and embark on their colossal UK tour this November and December. The show will feature traditional carols such as O Holy Night, O Little Town of Bethlehem and In The Bleak Midwinter, alongside festive favourites including White Christmas, It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, Little Drummer Boy, and Mistletoe and Wine.

Russell Watson has always been a huge supporter of Rock Choir and once famously said that Rock Choir was his favourite choir!! He comments:

"To get to share a stage again during our UK tour later this year will be such a special experience after three years apart. I hope Christmas With Aled and Russell is on all of your Christmas lists, and I can't wait to see you all on tour throughout November and December!"

Aled Jones comments: "We always have a blast on tour, so getting to sing our favourite Christmas songs together in so many stunning venues will be a real treat!"

Rock Choir will support Aled and Russell on all 21 dates of their tour. Rock Choir offers members once in a lifetime experiences, from recording sessions at the iconic Abbey Road Studios, to touring with well-known celebrities!
