NNF12: The Voice Project Choir makes early start to celebrate Norwich through song
At 5.11am on Saturday morning the sounds of The Voice Project Choir filled the cloisters of Norwich Cathedral as the Norfolk and Norwich Festival made an early start.
The Singing the City project sang as the sun rose, to start a day of singing from dawn until dusk.
There were 100 of the choir's members performing at three locations in a bid to celebrate the city with song.
From the cathedral they moved on to a 2pm performance. Starting from St Andrew's Plain, there were performances at 14 locations along Elm Hill and finishing at Art School Garth around an hour later.
The choir then headed back to the cathedral at 10pm for a dusk performance, to bring to a close a busy day of singing.

Under the leadership of Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker, the choir worked with theatre director Geraldine Pilgrim, also an established designer and installation artist, to celebrate the history, architecture, music and community of Norwich.
