Springwood High School concert success sees event planned as an annual fixture





A special concert took place for the first time at Springwood High School in Lynn.

Some 200 pupils performed at the event which was a showcase for their musical accomplishments.

It proved such a success that it will now feature in the musical calendar every year.

Robin Norman, director of music at West Norfolk Academies Trust, said: “The idea was to give the opportunity for some of our younger performers, smaller ensembles and soloists the chance to perform to an audience in a relaxed fashion.

“This is an invaluable step in their progress as musicians and really helps build confidence and camaraderie through the joy of music.”

Performers included the junior band, guitar ensemble, rock club and sax choir along with the school’s big band.

It coincided with Star Wars Day, Thursday, May 4, and featured some verbal references to the film.

The next public event is a summer piano recital on Tuesday, May 23, starting at 6.30pm and featuring schools from across the Trust, of which Springwood is a member.

The annual community music week starts on Monday, July 3 where there will be a premiere of a new youth opera, Birdland, along with rock and pop night with local bands and an evening of vocal celebration with a mass choir of some 300 students.
