Norfolk Camerata (formerly North Norfolk Chorale) will be hosting a Come and Sing Day to celebrate its re-launch. 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.
 
The day will conclude with an evening concert starting at 6.00 pm, 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. Participants can bring their own lunch and refreshments to enjoy in the Chapel’s meeting room, or take advantage of the many pubs, cafes and restaurants in this corner of Norwich.

Her current challenge is exploring and experiencing the truth of Ephesians 1v8.   Her ambition is to know the height and width and length and depth of the love of God and to be a witness to this, to enable others to 'grow and experience the joy of your faith'
