40th Anniversary Concert

11288296816_c2d188a96b_k

This year we are celebrating 40 years of The Wroxham School. As part of the celebrations we will be holding a musical extravaganza featuring groups made up from Wroxham’s, far-reaching, old and current community. This will include a Concert Band, String Orchestra, Recorder Ensemble and a Community Choir.

If you are, or have been, involved with the school in any capacity (past pupil, past or current parent, staff, governor) and would like to join in and perform at this special event, we would love you to get in touch. If you can’t play an instrument then we are sure you can sing! Our current plan is for each group to perform two pieces and then join together for a grand finale! You are welcome to take part in as many ensembles as you wish!

The concert will take place on Saturday 9th July 2016 starting with current school pupils, performing in their ensembles, from 4.30pm. After a short interval we will have the community groups and then we will hopefully end our evening with a headline act!!!

In order to perform at a concert of this scale it is of course necessary to have a number of rehearsals before the event. We are aware that time is limited in our busy lives and have therefore tried to keep the schedule to a minimum (see dates below). Each group will have three rehearsals before the day and all we ask is that you attend at least two rehearsals as well as the rehearsal during the concert day.

Of course none of this can take place unless our community get involved, so if you are interested in taking part please fill in the reply slip form below, or download The Wroxham School 40th Anniversary Concert.pdf and return it to Wroxham School via email (music@thewroxham.net), post or in person by Wednesday 30th March.

You can keep in touch with concert preparations by checking for updates on the Wroxham Music Blog (music.thewroxham.org.uk), following us on Twitter (@WroxSchoolMusic) and viewing the school website. Finally, please share this letter with anyone who you think would be interested. We look forward to reuniting the past and present Wroxham community!

Jo Turner, Michele Combes and Sarah Munn
