Magna Voce had lots of fun at the ‘Music for Youth Proms’ rehearsals on Sunday afternoon, preparing themselves for their special opera, solo and ensemble performances at the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday. Everyone worked very hard and it was inspiring to work alongside such talented musicians of all the other schools – it was amazing to see 600 pupils all practising together in the School’s Sports Hall!
Pupils had to focus and listen closely to the orchestra, soloists and choir. We are all extremely excited to put all the hard work together for the ‘Music for Youth Proms’ performance at the Royal Albert Hall this coming Wednesday!
It was a pleasure to host the day and our thanks go to Norfolk Music Hub and Norwich Theatre Royal for putting together this special massed ensemble event of A Kind of Magic Flute. The piece is part of a new children’s opera, based on Mozart’s The Magic Flute, which adds a distinctive salsa flavour to the original melodies! The’ Music for Youth Proms’ concerts are a celebration of the entire Music for Youth annual season, showcasing high quality performances from some of the UK’s most creative, innovative and energetic young musicians.
