Octagon Chapel, Norwich
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.
 
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 ros.peedle@live.co.uk

Fiona Oonman, originally from Cheshire, has spent most of her life in London or even further south. She has been privileged to have had a full career in front-line leadership and management in a number of sectors including a well-known national retailer, then the education sector,  as well as in 'not for profit' charities.  She has deeply enjoyed the 30-year adventure of a cross cultural marriage - Fiona's late husband Jacob was a lawyer from Singapore and was of a Christian Indian heritage. Their pride and joy remains their three grown-up children – Joshua, Jonathan and Jessica.
Fiona has sought to walk closely with Jesus from a young age and is being taught more and more the reality of being a child of God. 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'
 
So do come and join us for an evening of fellowship, wonderful worship followed by the main talk. There will also be a time  for prayer ministry at the end of the evening. Please feel able to arrive at from  7pm for coffee, cakes and chat, for a 7.30 start.
