What a festive collection of Christmas music from film, television and theatre this was!

Featured were well-known tunes such as Howard Blake's haunting 'Walking in the Air' from The Snowman, popular melodies from Disney's hit animation, Frozen along with great orchestral music from Nigel Hesse, Leroy Anderson, Irving Berlin and John Williams.

We were particularly proud to welcome as part of our Christmas concert,The Pops Youth Chorus. They are a collective of students from local Norfolk schools, Flegg High School, City of Norwich School and Notre Dame High School.

Those in attendance witnessed the youth singers present a WORLD PREMIERE of 'Horizons' a work written by two music students at Notre Dame High School.
