Norwich Youth for Christ’s Gospel Choir reunion concert 

Over 50 people who were involved in the Norwich Youth for Christ Gospel Choir between 2007 to 2015 have agreed to return for a special fundraising concert to celebrate the charity’s 40th birthday.

On Saturday, July 21 at 8pm Norwich Youth for Christ are hosting a special Gospel Choir Reunion Concert as part of the charity’s 40th birthday celebrations.  The concert at Norwich Central Baptist Church, which will bring together past members of the choir, is the idea of former youth worker Heather Land.
 
Heather said: “Choir members are excited about singing with each other again and there is high enthusiasm for the concert. It’s a combination of the choice of music, the passion with which is it sung, the buzz of the atmosphere of the choir and the community aspect that makes it appealing. And of course we know the Holy Spirit is amongst it, which is why it also feels so good!”
 
Norwich Youth for Christ Office Manager, Fliss Jones, who helped the choir in its infancy and is managing the reunion concert said: “This is a fantastic fundraiser for us as part of our 40th birthday but it’s also an exciting opportunity to bring friends to a high quality Christian concert that is uplifting and encouraging. The choir are sounding incredible at the rehearsals, possibly the best they’ve ever been!”
 
The gospel choir project ran from 2007 - 2015, at a time when choirs were having a resurgence. TV shows such as Glee and The Voice were prime time viewing and a number of choir competitions were being held around the country. The choir took part in some of these competitions, winning the Bandstand competition at Soul Survivor in 2008 and awarded as runners up in the BBC Norfolk’s Choir of the Year 2011.
 
The fruit of the project still lasts, with former choir members able to recall the difference it made on their life. Chris Starling said: “The Gospel Choir has had an enormous impact on my life! I am still feeling the effects seven years on. The Gospel Choir brought me out of my shell and gave the confidence that has seen me to where I am today.”

Tickets are just £7 each or £5 for concessions with under 12’s free. Tickets can be purchased online here or by calling the office at 01603 620678
