Rehearsals are 'sounding fantastic' as the Showstoppers choir of a thousand prepares to close the Royal Norfolk Show.
Under the leadership of the Norfolk Music Hub and in partnership with The Wharf Academy and Young Norfolk Arts Trust, Showstoppers will perform a specially commissioned piece of music that is being composed by Cheryl Frances-Hoad and will have strong connections to Norfolk and its rural landscape.
The words are being written by local librettist Molly Naylor and will focus on the earth, agriculture, and all that Norfolk has to offer.
The thousand-strong choir, aged between four and 80, have come from across the county.
Alison Corfield, from Norfolk Music Hub, said: 'Everyone seems really confident.
You may also want to watch:
'It is a bit of a logistical nightmare and the only issue is we can't rehearse as a group on the day so will be having pop-up rehearsals.'
