Norwich Philharmonic Chorus concert in Norwich

Looking forward to hearing the Norwich Philharmonic Chorus give their first public performance for nearly 2 years with the wonderful Petite Messe Solennelle by Rossini at St Andrew’s Hall, Norwich, on Saturday 6th November.

Because of CoVid restrictions on space, the work will be performed in its original version with the choir and 4 guest soloists accompanied by two pianos and harmonium rather than the orchestra. It’s neither petite nor solemn but really very lovely. So do come and listen!

Tickets are £18, £17, £12 unreserved (£7 for students/Under 26’s). Available online at
