Norwich Door to Door is a Norwich-based charity that celebrates 30 years of success in 2022. Year-round, the charity provides a friendly and reliable door to door community transport service to residents of Norwich and its districts.  

They offer people with limited mobility the opportunity to remain independent and involved within the community.

For those that have difficulty using other forms of transport, their accessible minibuses help people get to medical appointments, day centres, clubs, shops, lunches or to meet with friends or family.

They have a fleet of 13 minibuses equipped with tail-lifts, steps, secure anchor points for wheelchairs and scooters, as well as friendly, trained and DBS checked driver and assistants to ensure comfort and safety.

The success of the charity depends on its volunteers, sponsors and fundraising to provide the service.

Every year they organise fundraising events to support their work. This year they celebrate their 30th anniversary with a special concert at St Peter Mancroft Church, opposite the Forum in Norwich.

Keswick Hall Choir presents Americana 2 Saturday 30 November 2019

Saturday 30 November 2019

Americana 2: Exploring North American choral music

Aaron Copland In the beginning
Dan Forrest Good night, dear heart
Randall Thompson Alleluia
Ernst Toch Geographical fugue
David del Tredici Acrostic song
Eric Whitacre When David heard

Plus folksong and spiritual arrangements by James Erb, Robert Fountain and John Rutter

A programme exploring some jewels of 20th-century American choral music. Copland’s choral fantasia joyfully expounds the Genesis story of creation, while Whitacre’s deeply felt setting of a line from the Second Book of Samuel really plucks at the heartstrings. The programme will include both a speaking chorus (Toch) and a whispering chorus (del Tredici) as well as Randall Thompson’s classic setting of just one word.

Director: Chris Duarte

Venue: Church of St Peter Mancroft, Norwich
Time: 7.30 pm
