The Music for Youth Proms showcase the extraordinary talent from thousands of the UK’s young musicians, creating an unforgettable experience for the groups performing and the audience. Building on the existing partnership between Norfolk Music Hub and Norwich Theatre Royal on the Norfolk Schools’ Opera Project, taking place in June 2019, we are putting together a massed performance of a new opera titled 'A Kind of Magic Flute'. 600 children taking part in the Norfolk Schools’ Opera Project will join the massed ensemble and perform selected highlights of this brand-new opera. Accompanying the massed choir of children from across the County will be an orchestra made up of talented young musicians from Norfolk Music Service ensembles, including the Norfolk County String Ensembles and County Symphonic Wind Band, who celebrated success at the Music for Youth Prom in 2017.

What we'll deliver:

  • Take 600 children from Norfolk to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in front of family, friends & other young performers

Why it's a great idea:

The 600 children (aged 7-11 years) come from schools across Norfolk. Many of them from some of the most deprived areas in the County. These schools will lead the Norfolk performance at the Royal Albert Hall in November. The young singers will be accompanied by the Norfolk County Symphonic Wind Band and County Strings Ensembles which are made up of players of grade 6 – 8+. This will create an aspirational experience for the younger children to perform alongside some of Norfolk’s highest achieving young musicians and demonstrate what they two could achieve with practice and dedication.

Steps to get it done:

  • schools signed up and rehearsals commence
