The acclaimed National Youth Choir will give first concert in Norwich for many years, featuring music from women composers, following a free pop-up performance in the city.

The UK’s top young choristers are coming to Norwich this month for two performances.

Following a free ‘pop-up performance’ outside The Forum on April 15 at 12pm, the National Youth Choir will give an evening concert of beautiful choral music at St Andrew’s Hall.

Inspired by NYCGB’s 2018 artistic theme of ‘Women in Song’, the choir’s first concert in Norwich for many years features music from UK composers like Sheena Phillips, Roxanna Panufnik, Thea Musgrave and Imogen Heap and pieces from American composer Libby Larsen and Jamaican Eleanor Alberga.
