NCYM staff are appointed by the Guildhall in partnership with the Norfolk Music Service and we run a range of activities for students aged 8 – 18. The emphasis is on encouraging enthusiastic and able musicians to take part in a full morning of musical activities. We are presently running 3 choirs, a range of string/wind ensembles from grade 2 – grade 8+, improvisation sessions, general musicianship classes, classical guitar/percussion groups, theory and a tango band! Individual lessons are also available on some instruments.
The new Music in Norwich programme is now available around Norwich and at the Tourist Information Centre, Theatre Royal, Norwich Arts Centre, Prelude Records and other venues in the city centre as well as a download from this site. It features the celebration of the centenary of Benjamin Britten under the banner of Familiar Fields so wherever you see a concert marked with the logo below, you know that it is to celebrate the birth of Benjamin Britten. Here’s a link to the Familiar Fields website http://www.familiarfields.org/
There is a bumper crop of work by music organisations who operate in and around Norwich and we are very glad to see them working together to produce Music In Norwich calendar. On the At a Glance pages you can see the concerts month by month and how they relate to each other – that helps both you as a concert-goer and the organisers and programmers see where there are clashes and what the spread of work is. It also helps visitors to see what is on offer if they are interested in music and concerts, so please distribute the link and tell people about Music in Norwich.
