Open Concert this Saturday afternoon: join us!

Join us this Saturday afternoon, 3 February, for our open Soloists’ Concert. Listen to members and non-members, and maybe one or two of our teachers, share some of their favourite music with you. From beginners to intermediate and more advanced players, there will be something for everyone.

The concert is at St John’s Church in the Walks, King’s Lynn at 3.30pm, and refreshments will be served from 3.15pm. One lucky winner will also go home with half the proceeds of our raffle!

Calling all soloists…

Come and play and sing in our Soloists’ Concert on Saturday 3 February.

Open to all young musicians, adult learners and exam candidates, we are providing this opportunity for amateur players and singers to perform for a small, friendly audience. Ideal if you are preparing for an Associated Board exam, as our concert venue is also an exam centre for a lot of local students; you can try out the piano and get used to the acoustics of the church before your exam date.

We just ask each player or singer to prepare up to 5 minutes of music to play for others, and to be supportive of everyone else (many of whom may be performing for the first time). Beginners and experienced players, any grade level or none, and non-members as well as members of West Norfolk Music Centre all welcome.

There are still a few slots available, so contact us now if you’re interested in taking part and we’ll provide all the information you need. Email info@wnmc.org.uk.
