We love what we do, and we’d love to share it, particularly in this our Ruby Anniversary year.

So…have you ever thought you might like to have a go at singing, or wondered if you’d enjoy singing four-part harmony in the barbershop style? We’re looking forward to sharing with all kinds of singers, whether you are an experienced, regular choral singer, a complete beginner, or somewhere in between. Our only stipulation is, you have to be a woman, aged 14+ (anyone under 18 will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult).

We’re hosting A Taste of Acappella on Saturday 31st August.

The venue: Lionwood Infant & Nursery School, Telegraph Lane East, Norwich NR1 4AN.

Time: 10am to 4pm

Tea and coffee will be provided, but please bring a packed lunch (and you may also want a bottle of water).

We’re asking for £5 per participant to cover the costs of music, venue hire etc.

The day will start with a warm-up, which will include sorting people into voice parts. After that, you’ll learn to sing a Tag (to find out what that is, come along!), then there’ll be a break for refreshments.

After that we will move on to working on a song, with further breaks for lunch and afternoon refreshment.

We are also looking to present a short Showcase Concert shortly after 4pm, so that your family and friends can come along and enjoy what you have learned. We’d be delighted if any groups who come along together would like to volunteer a song for the concert—so if you are a member of a choir, and come with enough friends to present something from your regular repertoire, we’d love to hear it.

We are not running A Taste of Acappella as a recruiting drive (although of course if anyone who participates is interested in joining Norwich Harmony, we’ll be very happy to give you details). We love the friendship and fellowship that come from singing together, and we’d very much like to spread appreciation of the barbershop genre a little further!

If you would like to participate, please contact our Musical Director at norwich.harmony.md@gmail.com, so that we have an idea of the numbers to expect.
