Purcell School IMPULSE outreach training programme

 The Society is delighted to be sponsoring the young musicians from the Purcell School of Music run workshops and interactive musical assemblies in three local primary schools on June 21stand 22ndas follows:

 All Saints Primary School Stibbard Thursday 21stJune from 1.30pm

 Fakenham Primary School – 9.00am Friday 22ndJune

 Docking Primary School – 11.00am and 2.50pm Friday 22ndJune

 Members are welcome to join these sessions which last for about 45 minutes and will be a lot of fun!

 The Purcell School's pupil-led outreach group IMPULSE has been visiting Norfolk for 10 years now, running inspiring workshops for children in primary schools and community concerts in local churches.  Former IMPULSE members have included Martin James Bartlett, BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2014, who loves Norfolk and has special links with many of the communities here.

 The Purcell is struggling to finance their musical touring programmes, and we hope very much that our sponsorship will help them continue this special relationship with Norfolk in future.

 They will also be giving Community Concerts at:

 St Andrew's Church, Thursford - 7.30 p.m. on Friday 22nd June
 Christ Church, Fulmodestone – 6.00 p.m on Saturday 23rd June
 All Saints, Bale - 4.00 p.m. on Sunday the 24th June

Once again members are very welcome to attend.

All three concerts will contain a lively mix of classical, jazz and popular musical items, performed by brilliant young school-age musicians who are some of the finest young players in the UK. They include Sean Payne, a former finalist in the BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year. The young musicians organise these concerts themselves, and are very excited about this tour.  They are all very grateful to The Arts Society for sponsoring them so kindly.
