Young musicians from across the area have performed in front of a live audience at the first ever West Norfolk Academies Trust community music week.
Springwood High School in King’s Lynn hosted the event which saw different styles of music performed each night including jazz, rock, pop, orchestra, and performances inspired by the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Springwood’s Director of Music, Robin Norman, said: “Every WNAT school was involved, and the evening concluded with over 200 students from our primaries and secondaries combining together in one song. That evening also attracted the largest audience, all of which thoroughly enjoyed the range of music on offer.”
Some 700 people attended across the four nights, and the event was so successful that there are already plans to repeat it next year. “The Community Music Week was a tremendous experience for both students and audiences alike,” continued Mr Norman.
“From the point of view of the students, they not only had the chance to perform on a professional level stage, but they also had the opportunity to listen to other groups of all levels, from other schools to amateur music groups, and all the way to professional bands. It was also brilliant to see the camaraderie that built between students from other schools, showing a mutual support all in the name of music.”
