Norwich community choir marks decade with concert 

Norwich Community Choir is marking its tenth anniversary with a birthday concert in Norwich’s Anglican Cathedral on November 24.

The choir has grown from humble beginnings, in 2008, to now present a diverse repertoire, performed entirely from memory, whilst remaining true to the community choir ethos, according to Meg Turpin, the choir leader.
“This is a choir where everyone who simply loves singing is welcome. There are no auditions and many members can’t read music,” said Sue. “Singing together is a great way to make friendships and build a lasting community.”
The choir, which meets at St Cuthbert’s in Sprowston and St Peter’s on Jessopp Road, Norwich, brings together a broad cross-section of singers, from different backgrounds, young and old, to perform a wide variety of heartwarming songs.
The 10th birthday concert planned at Norwich Cathedral on Saturday November 24, includes a unique version of Allegri’s Miserere.
Meg said: “It’s unusual for a community choir to tackle such an ambitious piece. This reworking of Allegri’s masterpiece preserves the mood and sensuality of the original, whilst bringing it into the present day using poignant lyrics taken from the words of choir members expressing their feelings about belonging to the choir.”
The cathedral concert is in aid of local charity Nelson’s Journey, who help bring back smiles to bereaved children in Norfolk.
