Description

THE NORTH NORFOLK CHORALE WAS FOUNDED WAY BACK IN 1873 AND IS THE OLDEST KNOWN CHOIR IN NORTH NORFOLK. WE ARE A REGISTERED CHARITY AND A LIMITED COMPANY BY GUARANTEE. WITH A MEMBERSHIP OF BETWEEN 40/50 SINGERS AGED BETWEEN 40 TO 75 YEARS WHO PERFORM SOME OF THE GREAT CHORAL WORKS OF OUR TIME ALONG WITH SONGS FROM THE SHOWS PAST AND PRESENT. WE USE THE SERVICES OF SOME OF OUR VERY OWN COMPOSERS FROM NORFOLK, WHO WRITE COMPOSITIONS FOR US IN THE MODERN STYLE, AND LOOK TO PERFORM 3/4 CONCERTS A YEAR ALL ACROSS NORFOLK. THE CHARITY'S OBJECT IS TO ADVANCE THE EDUCATION OF THE PUBLIC IN THE PERFORMING ARTS AND CHORAL MUSIC IN ALL ITS ASPECTS. BEING A NON-PROFESSIONAL CHOIR WHICH ASPIRES TO ACHIEVING A HIGH STANDARD AND PROVIDING ENTERTAINMENT WITH WIDESPREAD APPEAL. IN PERSUITE OF THE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES IDEAL, MEMBERSHIP IS OPEN TO ALL REGARDLESS OF RACE, COLOUR, DISABILITY OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION, AND THE COMMON BOND IS A LOVE OF SINGING. AS YOU WILL NOTE FROM OUR AGE GROUP, MOST OF OUR MEMBERS ARE OVER 40 YEARS OLD AND THIS IS MAINLY DUE TO THE FACT OLDER PEOPLE HAVE THE TIME TO COMMIT TO REHEARSING WHICH REQUIRES CONCENTRATION FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME AND DEEP BREATHING WHICH IN TURN DOES DELAY THOUGH NOT COMPLETELY THE ONSET OF SENILE DEMENTIA, WITH THE ADDED BONUS OF MAKING FRIENDS AND GOING OUT MORE WITH SUPPORT FROM OTHERS FROM MID TO LATER LIFE ONWARDS.
WE RAISE FUNDS OURSELVES AND THROUGH TICKET SALES, BUT NOT ENOUGH TO COVER THE COSTS OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCTOR, ACCOMPANISTS, SOLOISTS AND INSTRUMENTALISTS AS WELL AS VENUE HIRE FEES. WITH 3 POSSIBLY 4 CONCERTS ALREADY BOOKED FOR 2018 WE ARE SEEKING FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO CONTINUE THE WORK OF THE CHOIR FOR THE NEXT 144 YEARS.
