The Voice Project to be ‘Lost & Found’ at City Hall for Christmas concert

Iconic Norwich building will be brought alive in promenade performance from city choir

Norfolk’s internationally renowned Voice Project Choir will perform three Christmas concert in one of Norwich’s best known and iconic buildings.

‘Lost & Found’ will see the choir’s 100+ voices joined by soloists for promenade performances that will animate the extraordinary building, exploring little known and seldom seen areas. The concerts will feature music and songs specially written for the choir to sing in City Hall and take place on 6 December at 5pm, 7pm and 9pm.

The concerts are the final part of the innovative choir’s 2014 trilogy exploring the themes of memory and imagination. Earlier in the year they took their show Souvenir to Holkham Hall in May and in July Things We’ve Forgotten to the Undercroft beneath the War Memorial at Norwich Market.

Created by singers Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker in 2008, the choir has involved hundreds of singers in performances of great new vocal music as well as running workshops designed to build vocal confidence and explore a wide variety of uplifting and inspiring vocal music.

The choir is one of the best known in the East of England and beyond. It has appeared at international jazz festivals in London, Gateshead and Normandy, been featured on BBC Radio 3, on television via BBC 1 and peak time national TV in France. It has just been nominated for the second year running for an EDP People’s Choice Award in the Norfolk Arts Awards (with co-founder Sian Croose also nominated for a solo award) and is commissioned annually by Norfolk & Norwich Festival to create new work.

Norwich City Hall was opened on 29 October 1938 by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Designed by architects Charles Holloway James and Stephen Rowland it is considered to be an exemplary building of its period, an Art Deco public building of national significance. City Hall was completed to the highest standards of architectural integrity and individual craftsmanship, even the bricks were specially made, each one being two inches longer than usual to better reflect the proportions of the finished building. It has the largest clock bell in the UK, with the deepest tone in East Anglia.

Sian Croose said ‘I have long been an admirer of this wonderful and much loved building. From the magnificent bronze doors, the lions and the fantastic interior fittings it is so inspirational. We are really thrilled to have the opportunity to create a performance specially for it.’

Fittingly the Voice Project Choir is a true community choir, welcoming participants of all abilities, ages, and backgrounds. No previous singing experience is needed, there are no auditions and everyone is welcome. Many members of the choir, who come from all over Norfolk, join time and time again, extolling the relaxing and therapeutic values of singing, others join on a one–off basis leaving with an enhanced sense of achievement and satisfaction.
