Busy December for Norwich Singers

Norwich Singers had a very busy December singing around the city and further afield.

The festive season started early, on 1 December 2019, when Norwich Singers sang an Advent Carol Service at St Edmund’s Church, Costessey, Norwich. This was the first Advent Carol Service in the church for a number of years, and the first time Norwich Singers have sung an Advent Carol Service. The service was well attended and all enjoyed this reflective start to the hectic Christmas period.

Norwich Singers at St Edmund’s Church Costessey for the Advent Carol Service

On Saturday 7 December a small group from the Norwich Singers sang carols at Doughty’s Hospital in Norwich, and on Thursday 12 December another small group did the same at the Community Hospital in Norwich.

Norwich Singers’ Christmas Concert took place at Chapel Field Methodist Church on Saturday 14 December 2019. As usual the concert told the Christmas story through carols, songs and readings. As well as many favourite songs and carols, the choir also performed some new pieces, including ‘Out of the Orient Crystal Skies’ by Kerry Andrews and ‘Birthday Carol, by David Willcocks, and for the first time a New Year’s carol, ‘New Year’ by John Rutter.

On the following Monday and Tuesday, 16 and 17 December, the Norwich Singers were very pleased  to perform our Christmas concert again at How Hill as we have done in previous years. This was once again a most enjoyable evening, helped along by mince pies and mulled wine, and helped to raise valuable funds for the How Hill Trust.

Norwich Singers help raise awareness of teen suicide

On Friday 11 October 2019, the Norwich Singers were very proud to sing at an evening raising awareness of the horrific rise in the number of young people taking their own lives.
Exactly one year earlier, Jess Fairweather, a first-year student at UEA, originally from North Walsham, had taken his own life. HIs mother, Bev Cox, has made a film about the five days after Jess’s death both as a testament to him and to raise awareness of the issues of depression and suicide int young people. The evening, held at the Puppet Theatre, allowed friends and family to remember Jess, and launched the short film.
Jess loved musicals and so the Norwich Singers were asked to sing songs from some of Jess’s favourite musicals: ‘Any Dream Will Do’ from Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, ‘Feed the Birds’ From Mary Poppins, and a medley from Oliver.
The evening ended with Jess’s favourite song – ‘Razzle Dazzle’ from Chicago and everyone was given a small sealed envelope full of glitter, bearing the words ‘Keep Your Razzle Dazzle!’
It was a beautiful evening talking about an important issue, and the Norwich Singers were very pleased to be a small part of it.
