Surround Sound: Norwich Playlist - Britten Sinfonia - What's On

Surround Sound: Norwich Playlist

18 May 2021


Join Britten Sinfonia at Norwich Cathedral for a unique live music experience. Surround Sound will bring a playlist of music from the 16th to the 21st century to all corners of Norwich Cathedral for audiences of all ages to enjoy.

Over an hour, you’ll hear short pieces of music from not one but five performance spaces within the Cathedral. There will be choral and chamber music, solos, the cathedral organ and a 20-piece orchestra. Each audience member’s experience of the event will be personal and influenced by where you sit. Not all performance areas will be visible to you: sometimes you won’t be able to work out where within the arches and chapels and galleries the music is echoing from.

Seating at this event will include chairs, but the majority of seating areas will be provided as mats for household groups on the floor – bring a cushion or a blanket and get comfortable to enjoy the music your way.

Got questions? We’ve compiled an FAQ about this event.
