Love the Street evangelism training in Norwich
The Norfolk County Symphonic Windband is a 50 strong ensemble of young brass, woodwind and percussion players ranging in age from 11-18, conducted by David Stowell and run by the County Music Service which is the lead organisation in the Norfolk Music Hub.
Players have to be Grade 6-8 level to join so the standard of playing is extremely high. In April the band competed in the Festival of Music for Youth at Snape Maltings and made it through to the next round which will take place in Birmingham in July.
Success in this round could mean a performance at the Royal Albert Hall. Their musical director, David Stowell, is a distinguished composer and conductor of some of the world's best brass bands including Grimethorpe and the Black Dyke Mills Band. He said:
"We are really looking forward to performing in Aylsham Church and have an exciting programme planned. There will be music from John Williams, and the musical Wicked as well as some of the best contemporary music for windband from composers such as Rob Wiffen, Director of Music for the RAF."
The concert is free and starts at 7.30pm and will be a great opportunity to hear some very talented young people.
