Come and Sing Day at Fakenham led by Choral Society musical director

Fakenham Choral Society is hosting a Come and Sing Day on Saturday, February 16, in Fakenham Academy.

The day encourages all singers, whether you sing regularly or have not sung for a while, to come along and have fun. There is plenty of free parking and a large hall.

As well as raising funds for the choral society the day also aims to support Tapping House Hospice with singers’ donations, a raffle on the day and audience donations all going to the hospice.

It will be led by FCS’s new musical director Mark Jones, who as a former head of music at Gresham’s school and of Gresham’s Choral Society, will be a familiar face to many in North Norfolk.

During the day the choir will be learning and performing John Rutter’s exuberant cycle of spirituals, Feel the Spirit.

Set for choir and mezzo soprano soloist, the cycle includes familiar spirituals such as ‘Steal Away’, ‘Deep River’ and finishes with a wonderfully uplifting version of ‘When The Saints Go Marching In’.

There will be morning and afternoon workshops and then a performance at 5pm in front of an audience.

The performance, which lasts about 45 minutes, is free but the audience is invited to give a donation to Tapping House Hospice.

The choir will be accompanied by mezzo soprano soloist Rosamund Walton and a small band of instrumentalists to give the right atmosphere to this delightful work.
