Norfolk’s multi-award-winning Voice Project Choir has unveiled plans for another exciting durational event for the 2018 Norfolk & Norwich Festival.
Timepiece will be a 12-hour song cycle, beginning at noon on Friday 25 May with a single solo singer in Norwich Cathedral.
There will be subsequent performances in various parts of the cloisters and garth of the magnificent cathedral on the hour, every hour. Increasing numbers of singers will join in, building to the full choir of 150 voices with soloists and instrumentalists at 9pm, then fading back to solo voices at midnight.
Each hourly performance will be about 10 minutes long and free to attend, other than the special ticketed event in the cathedral between 9pm and 10pm for which the cathedral will be atmospherically and spectacularly lit in Voice Project’s trademark style.
Created by Jonathan Baker and Sian Croose, the Voice Project Choir has become one of the best known in the east of England. It is renowned for its exceptional concerts of original music, high production values and for being totally open access with no auditions for those wishing to join.
