Be part of 12th Norwich Sing-Along at Eaton Church
Margaret Smith, the Music Director of St Andrew's Church in Eaton, has issued a wide ranging invitation for singers, musicians and an audience to join the upcoming Celebration Sing-Along happening on February 4 as it raises money for Norwich YFC.
On Saturday, February 4, 7.30pm at St Andrew’s Church in Eaton, Margaret Smith (pictured) and Miles Quick will lead their twelfth annual Sing-along.
Singers, musicians and audience annually come together for this one off performance and have fun. Everyone is welcome and no rehearsal is necessary. All the music will be available to borrow.
This year there will be a retiring offering for Norwich Youth for Christ (YFC), a charity close to Margaret’s heart where she is Chair of Trustees.
Margaret said: “Last year we had around 70 singers, and a small group of musicians. You can be part of the scratch choir, you can join us as an instrumentalist, you can come and just sing well-known items (or even hum them if you prefer!), or you can relax and be part of the audience.
“The programme will definitely include the wonderful “Gloria” by Vivaldi which several people have asked us to include, and in the second half of the programme Roger Jones’ “Apostle”, featuring the conversion of Saul in jazzy style, will provide a real contrast. And there will be other items too. So - we shall have some fun!”
While there is no need to attend a rehearsal, if you would like the opportunity to rehearse the choruses in advance, there is a rehearsal on Monday, January 30 at 7.30 pm in St Andrew’s Church and on the Saturday morning in church from 9 am - 11 am.
There is ample car parking at the church or in Waitrose car park next door on the Saturday evening (permission will be arranged with Waitrose).
The evening is free, with a retiring offering for Norwich Youth For Christ.
St Andrew’s Church Eaton, St Andrew's Street, Norwich, NR2 4AD (behind Waitrose)
