EDP Norfolk - - Inside -

Nor­folk’s Voice Project Choir is invit­ing any­one who would like to sing (no ex­pe­ri­ence nec­es­sary) to join a new project for the 2017 Nor­folk & Nor­wich Fes­ti­val. The Arms of Sleep will be an overnight sleep­over ex­pe­ri­ence for the au­di­ence, with the choir pro­vid­ing mu­sic in the even­ing and morn­ing.

The event will be held at Nor­wich’s his­toric As­sem­bly House where au­di­ences of up to 40 peo­ple will each be given a com­fort­able bed to cre­ate a dream–like night of mu­sic and sto­ries, sound and im­ages. Fol­low­ing a pre­view on May 20 per­for­mances will be held on the evenings of May 22 to 26 with a sec­ond part on the next morn­ing.

Voice Project co-di­rec­tor Sian Croose said:”We’d like to wel­come ab­so­lutely any­one over 16 with a de­sire to sing to join the choir. There are no au­di­tions and all re­hearsals are con­ducted in such a way that no pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence of singing or mu­sic is re­quired.” Par­tic­i­pants will not be ex­pected to be avail­able for ev­ery fes­ti­val per­for­mance.

This is the sec­ond part of the Arms of Sleep tril­ogy, fol­low­ing on from Be­yond Stars at Nor­wich Cathe­dral in Jan­uary. The fi­nal sec­tion will be at a ma­jor in­ter­na­tional fes­ti­val in 2018.

There is a no obli­ga­tion taster ses­sion for any­one who thinks they may be in­ter­ested in join­ing the choir at The Friends Meet­ing House, Lower Goat Lane, Nor­wich on Tues­day, March 7, at 7.30pm.
