Directed by John Harrison, Rock City is Barre’s one and only Rock & Soul chorus with 35+ singers and one rocking band! Our mission is to serve the residents of Barre and Central Vermont through music by giving back to our community through our benefit concerts. The group will present an evening of songs from the sixties through the aughts, in four part harmony, with a great band. You are sure to be entertained; you may sing along; and you just might get out on the dance floor. This is going to be a great evening for a great cause. Come on out and let us entertain you!
