Orchestra visit is music to young ears
Published on 12/06/18
Students at Cromer Academy have been inspired to pick up an instrument during a special concert and live music workshop.
Musicians from Norfolk Music Hub visited the school to play for students on Thursday, June 7.
They performed pieces from across musical history, from classical composers such as Vivaldi and Dvorak up to Ed Sheeran and the Doctor Who theme.
During the concert the musicians introduced students to their instruments, which included cello, violin, saxophone, and flute.
The visit was organised by Inspiration Trust director of music John Stephens as part of Norfolk Music Hub’s Live Music Week, which visits schools to inspire young people to get involved in music.
Cromer Academy headteacher Antony Little said: “It is fantastic to work in partnership with the Norfolk Music Hub and bring a live orchestra to play for Cromer students. They will have learnt so much from seeing instruments performed live and to see and hear how musical styles have developed over 500 years.
“Music is at the heart of our school and we hope this inspires students to get involved at any stage and any level.”
