Norwich School pupils take part in Music for Youth Proms at the Royal Albert Hall

22 November 2017

The Norfolk County Symphonic Wind Band, of which Norwich School pupils Bethan Callow (Flute), James Thistlewood (Trombone), India Riordan (Trumpet) and Barnaby Shaw (Bassoon) are part of, took to the stage at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 15th November. They were selected from thousands of ensembles to perform.

The Norfolk County Symphonic Wind Band once again produced an outstanding performance, giving them national recognition as one of the most innovative and energetic youth ensembles in the country.

Having performed at the Music For Youth Regional Festival at Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh, in March, and then invited to perform at the National Festival at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall in July, they fought of stiff competition from ensembles of a very high standard to secure their place in the culmination event of the Music For Youth annual season, the Music For Youth Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, London.
