Yesterday afternoon, three Norwich School pupils were invited to perform at a Young Musicians' Concert in Northrepps, near Cromer. Rose Herbert (oboe), Ed Bartram (voice) and Alex Fisher (guitar) were asked to take part in the event alongside three other performers. Each gave an excellent account of themselves and performed some difficult repertoire with real professionalism and musicianship. The audience was hugely appreciative and many remarked on the talent on display from such young performers. Well done!
