Our latest concert took place on 30th November at a venue new to us – the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic church in North Walsham. Father James Walsh made us very welcome and we were delighted to sing to a large and appreciative audience.
The highlight of our programme was Mozart’s Mass in C major, K.167, “In honorem Sanctissimae Trinitatis” which was preceded by Mozart’s “Ave Verum Corpus” and Haydn’s “Insanae and Vanae Curae”.
Our talented accompanist, William Falconer, also treated us to an organ recital of one of Bach’s preludes and fugues.
Choir and audience afterwards commented on the excellent acoustics and intimate ambience of the venue and Norfolk Camerata will definitely be returning to the Sacred Heart church in 2020.

Our Summer concert on 6th July at the beautiful Salle church explored some lesser known works of the early Baroque period.
We were joined by the recorder players Musica Mira and soloists Elenor Bowers-Jolley and Willow Swiatek.
“Congratulations to you all on the success of your first Come and Sing event. Although I had sung both works before I found much that was of interest during the rehearsal….”
” Thank you so much to you all at Norfolk Camerata. I really enjoyed the day, and found the workshop in the morning and then the rehearsal in the afternoon an excellent and interesting concept. The organisation was very good, as was the constant supply of tea/coffee and biscuits….. Thank you, again, for inviting us, and providing an excellent day of singing. “
“…. the highlight of the day was undoubtedly the morning training session when we were put through our technical paces sorting out diction and pitches with someone who really understood how to get the best out of us. Such trainers are rare and that session alone made the day well worthwhile…. Once again many thanks for all the hard work that went into what was a very successful and enjoyable day. It was well worth the effort.”
” I really enjoyed the Come & Sing day, it was great fun, lovely venue and a great programme. The two soloists were outstanding as well, they had wonderful voices both individually and as a blend. I thought all the admin went very well, as did the refreshments organisation and handing out scores. I am surprised to hear that it was the first time you have done it, the organisation seemed very slick to me!”
” Thank you for the Come and Sing day at the Octagon. I very much enjoyed the day and was very impressed with the quality work of the two different musical directors/ conductors. “
