Musicians from 13 different primary schools across West Norfolk have joined forces to perform as one large orchestra.
Around 100 pupils aged eight to 11 took part in the performance at Gaywood Primary School in front of an audience that included the borough’s Deputy Mayor Margaret Wilkinson.
It brought together 13 schools from the West Norfolk Academies Trust for the event.
Robert Galliard, who oversaw the project, explained: “The children who have been part of the scheme were invited to a joint session at Gaywood Primary School. They rehearsed both as a large orchestra and also as separate wind band and string ensemble, before showcasing their work to parents.
“They played music that is aimed at beginner ensembles – the important thing was that they were playing together and meeting children with a similar interest from across West Norfolk.”
Participating schools included Walpole Cross Keys, Clenchwarton, West Lynn, Heacham Junior, Snettisham, and host school Gaywood – all of which are Trust members – along with St Martha’s (Gaywood) , Docking, Flitcham, Holly Meadows (Pott Row), Gayton, Fairstead, and Tilney All Saints.
