Sounds interesting

Youthful music
As part of the promotion of Norfolk County Youth Orchestra’s concert in Attleborough Church on Saturday 28 March, David O’Neale of Norfolk Music Service is leading workshops in a number of schools including Old Buckenham Primary and High Schools.
At Old Buckenham Primary he is working with Year 5 on listening to, and pupils playing, excerpts from the concert programme. They will also compose their own piece based on one of the ideas in the concert (for instance as in Smetana’s Vltava which tracks the river from its source to the open sea or Grieg’s Homage March to a hero). The pupils will also devise art work on the trolls attacking Peer Gynt in the hall of the mountain king. This will be on display at the concert.
At Old Buckenham High School, as well as listening to the concert items, members of the wind band will play some of the easier excerpts from the concert programme. They may also provide an informative display on the friends of Elgar portrayed in his Enigma Variations.

If you are interested in going to the concert, the details are:
