Q: WHAT IS ROCK IT CHOIR?
A: An event where you can drink beer with strangers, while learning a song in 3-part harmony, then perform it and we film it.
Q: HOW DO I JOIN?
A: Buy a ticket and show up! The audience IS the choir. There's NO rehearsals! NO auditions! NO singing experience necessary.
Q: WHAT IF I REALLY CAN'T SING?
A: COME ANYWAY! We kick-off with a FUN "no perfection allowed" group voice lesson! And, the only 'wrong' thing you can do is not sing! So far, 100% of adults who said they couldn't sing, always end up sounding awesome!
Q: IS ROCK IT CHOIR FAMILY FRIENDLY?
A: Choir at the Cactus is an all-ages event. However, it’s probably more appropriate for people 12 and up, due to the attention required during vocal instruction.
Q: WILL I KNOW THE SONG AHEAD OF TIME?
A: Nope! It’s a secret (and part of the fun!) Each month, KUTX 98.9 reveals the artist on air, but you won’t find the song until you arrive at the event. Besides, it not about the song. It's about the magic powers and uplifting experience of singing in a group. It's a total rush of aliveness and happiness that will change your life!
Q: WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW THE SONG? WILL LYRICS BE AVAILABLE?
A: Yes! Song lyrics will be displayed on a screen, and we run through the melody before learning harmonies.
Q: WHEN IS ROCK IT CHOIR?
A: Saturdays: September 14, October 26, November 14, and December 7, 2019.
Q: WHERE IS ROCK IT CHOIR?
A: Cactus Cafe 2247 Guadalupe St, Austin, TX 78712 - on the University of Texas campus
Q: WHERE DO I PARK?
A: Metered parking is available around campus. Check out the City of Austin’s Park ATX App.
Public parking is available for $9 in the San Antonio Garage, located at 2420 San Antonio Street (a groovy reason to carpool).
To reach the Cactus from the garage, head east to Guadalupe, cross to the other side, then head south on Guadalupe to 22nd St. The Cactus is at 22nd and Guadalupe on the first floor of the Texan Union building on campus.
Another nifty option is to Lyft or Uber, particularly if you plan to drink at this event (because, let’s face it – some of us need a few drinks before we can sing in public.)
Q: WHAT AUSTIN MUSIC NON-PROFITS DO YOU SUPPORT?
A: 50% of ticket sales goes to benefit Austin Music nonprofits including: KUTX98.9, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians - HAAM, Beyond the Grade, Swan Music, Austin Music Foundation, SIMS Foundation, and Swan Songs.

A: Rock It Choir is the cure for FDD " Deficit Disorder"
