Our next concert will be a performance of Mozart’s Mass ‘Missa in honorem Sanctissimae Trinitatis’ at the Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart in North Walsham on Sat 30th Nov 2019 at 7:30pm
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. “
A huge thank you to everyone who helped to make our first Come and Sing Day such a success.
We were delighted to welcome many guest singers to the Octagon Chapel in Norwich on Saturday 23rd February for workshops and an evening performance of Handel’s ‘Zadok the Priest’ and Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’.
Our Musical Director, Jonathan Dodd, was joined by guest conductor Martin Budgett, and we were treated to wonderful solo performances from Elenor Bowers-Jolley and Willow Swiatek.
We are very grateful to our Assistant Director William Falconer, who accompanied the rehearsals as well as performing on organ and keyboard, to the volunteers from the Octagon Chapel, to all Camerata members who helped with organisation, and, of course, to everyone who came and joined us to sing on the day.
A special thank you also to Sonya Dodd and Howard Pullin for all their hard work behind the scenes
