A musical mystery tour wending its way through Norwich’s medieval heritage. A celebration of history, architecture, music and community. A pilgrimage of performance lasting a whole day, starting at sunrise with a chorus of welcome to the morning in the Cathedral cloisters and culminating in the nave as night falls.
Devised by Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker, this year’s Voice Project performances animate Norwich’s medieval squares and streets, crypts and alleys, dark corners and cloisters, courtyards and rooftops with tales of past and present and thrilling new music. A mixture of the ethereal, the spiritual and the unexpected, this is a genuinely unmissable event.
