Norwich-based choir The Voice Project has created the special promenade performance - called Lost and Found - which will explore different areas of the civic building.

Sian Croose, who created The Voice Project with Jonathan Baker in 2008, said: “I have long been an admirer of this wonderful and much loved building. From the magnificent bronze doors, the lions and the fantastic interior fittings it is so inspirational. We are really thrilled to have the opportunity to create a performance specially for it.”

The Voice Project’s 100-strong choir will be joined by Human Music ensemble and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Lever for Lost and Found. The programme will include Orlando Gough’s musical setting of the Norwich Patriotic Society Manifesto from 1795, along with new music created by Karen Wimhurst and Jonathan Baker and set to the words of poets Tom Warner, Esther Morgan and George Szirtes.

Brenda Arthur, leader of Norwich City Council, said: “When most people think of City Hall they naturally call to mind committee rooms, meetings and the various council business that’s carried out on a day-to-day basis within the council’s headquarters, so it will be wonderful for people to see one of the city’s famous public buildings put to such a creative use when it opens its doors and welcomes in such a fantastic contemporary choir.”
