MORRIS COUNTY, NJ- Three area teens will be touring with The RockNRoll Chorus this summer. Regina McElroy of Randolph,  and Becca Hoffman and Micaela Miyashiro of Morristown are members of The RockNRoll Chorus, an a capella choral group of high school students from throughout NJ.

Starting in 2007, The RockNRoll Chorus performs both contemporary and classic rock songs. The group aims to perform familiar songs through ensemble singing while maintaining the feel and energy of each piece’s original intent.  A cappella singing, seen in popular TV series such as “Glee” and  “The Sing-off”,  requires cast members to perform complex arrangements mimicking musical instrumentation using just their voices.

Joe Cantaffa, founder and Creative Director, auditions about 300 students from across NJ per year for the approximately 20 spots in each year’s cast. Cast members then spend about two weeks in July at Vocal Boot Camp where they learn proper vocal technique and health and exercise regimes to support their singing, as well as the repertoire for the upcoming tour.

McElroy, who will be a sophomore at Randolph High School in the fall, joined the group in April. She says she is so excited to be a part of this exciting ensemble. “Everyone works so hard to learn and perfect their individual parts. It is an amazing feeling to make music with this group!”

Hoffman, a senior at Morristown High School, says she loves performing for audiences. “As an ensemble we really try to perform at a professional level. When the audience applauds or sings along, we know we have done our jobs well.”

Miyashiro, also a senior at Morristown, is looking forward to going on her second tour with the group. The teens and the chorus staff will leave on a tour starting July 24th which will include many performances  throughout the southeast, including Baltimore MD, Charlotte NC and Savannah, GA.

They will perform at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL on July 30.  Miyashiro said “Touring is challenging in so many ways but I have great memories from last summer and can’t wait to make new memories this summer.”

The RockNRoll Chorus will be performing at Jenkinson’s Pavilion at the Point Pleasant Boardwalk on Thursday August 6.
