On Saturday 23rd February 2019 Norfolk Camerata (formerly North Norfolk Chorale) will be hosting a Come and Sing Day at the 18th-century Octagon Chapel in Norwich.
Two very popular works will be the focus of the day: Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ has been described as ‘a joyful hymn of praise and worship’, while ‘Zadok the Priest’, well
known for its performance at every British coronation since that of George II, boasts one of the most thrilling choral entrances in the musical canon.
Guest conductor Martin Budgett will lead a workshop on the music in the morning, and the afternoon session will involve rehearsal for performance, led by our Musical Director, Jonathan Dodd. Our singers will benefit greatly from experiencing two complementary approaches to the music.
At lunchtime and before the performance there will be time to enjoy this corner of Norwich with its many pubs, cafes and restaurants or participants can bring their own refreshments to enjoy in the Chapel’s meeting room.
We will conclude our day with an evening concert (starting at 6.00 p.m.), when the assembled choir will perform these works to an audience and which will also feature Pergolesi’s ‘Stabat Mater’ with Elenor Bowers-Jolley and Willow Swiatek as soloists.
To take part in the workshops and performance costs £16 which includes hire of scores.
Tickets for the evening performance cost £10.
Application forms to take part, or tickets for the performance, can be purchased through the Norfolk Camerata website at www.norfolkcamerata.co.uk or from Ros at or 01692 405591.
