Some of the UK’s top young choristers treated passers-by to a special pop-up performance in Norwich city centre.
The members of the National Youth Choir gave a free performance ouside The Forum at midday on Sunday ahead of taking to the stage last night for a concert at St Andrew’s Hall.
The choir - which includes 19-year-old Norwich singer Lucy Thalange who won Norfolk Young Musician of the Year in 2017 - attracted a crowd of about 200 people during the free lunchtime show. The performance gave a preview of the evening concert and included dance performances of Wonder-Woman and Libertango.
Choir member Emma Skelly, 19, said: “It was a nice feeling to stop people in their tracks and it looked like it made their day.”
Fellow singer Henry Reavey, 20, said: “It was great fun and it was nice to get to perform to locals and passers-by who were all very friendly.”
