The concert is being staged by the Institute of Food Research (IFR), and will involve singers and musicians working in other institutes on the Norwich Research Park. The programme will include pop, jazz, folk, classical and show tunes, and will also be the first performance of the newly formed Norwich Research Park choir, and the NRP string quartet.

The choir only met for this first time in September, and are practicing together every Thursday evening, so that they can hit the right notes on the big night.
