Soloists concert Saturday 9 February

Come and join us for our soloists’ concert on Saturday 9 February at St John’s Church, The Walks, King’s Lynn. This is a short, informal afternoon concert, with a wide range of music played by young (and some not so young!) soloists.

We run these concerts to give amateur players a chance to share their love of music with others, and they are open to musicians of any age, working at any exam grade or none.

Free entry for all, refreshments will be available.

If you want to play but you’ve missed out this time, contact us and sign up for our next concert in May.

Musical Christmas

West Norfolk Music Centre’s combined wind band, orchestra and choir entertained shoppers at Tesco Hardwick this afternoon with a selection of seasonal favourites.

Many thanks to all who took part or supported this event. And if you’d like to take part next year, join us now.

Get ready for next term!

Well done to all who played in our December concert on Saturday. Finland (and seasonal trips to Lapland) may be short of snow this year, but we had both Sibelius’s Finlandia and an abundance of seasonal cheer this weekend.

Amongst settings of Christmas favourites, we also heard Elizabethan music set for wind band, young singers, a bassoon solo and Mozart from our string players.

Before the music, Certificates were awarded to our exam candidates for their outstanding performance last term: 14 exams entered, 4 passed with distinction and 9 with merit. Don’t forget that we offer exam candidates the chance to play at our open concerts in February and May at the exam centre — and that members and non-members are welcome to take part in these concerts too.

Although our term is now finished, come along to see us play and sing (or to join in) at Tesco Hardwick, King’s Lynn, on Saturday afternoon, 8 December!
