FROM THE CHAIRMAN Coping with Change in the 1920’s Sadly last year Olive Shorten, daughter of the founder of this festival, died well into her eighties. Although living in Bournemouth, she maintained a lively interest in the festival including funding the Shorten Cup. In her will she made a very kind bequest to continue funding the Cup and a grant towards helping the festival continue. A memorial concert was held in her memory at the Assembly House in September. Amongst her papers was a fascinating set of documents relating to the formation of the festival. In 1923 there was a massive negative reaction amongst many of the leading musicians in Norwich when they learnt that the wireless was coming to Norfolk. A high profile meeting was called at The Royal Hotel attended by Sir John Reith ( he of Reith Lecture Fame), Henry Wood, local members of parliament and, for some reason, the Head Postmaster! The BBC refused to withdraw so at the conclusion of the meeting, Arthur Shorten stood and announced that he would set up a Music Festival in Norwich that would promote amateur music making and performance thus preventing folk from just sitting at home listening to others play on the wireless. Little did he realise how successful his plan was. We still have the wireless and we still have a thriving festival which encourages a huge range of musicians from all over the county. Coping with Change 2013 For some years now we have had a web site but the recent massive increase in postal charges and the fact that almost everyone has access to a computer means the NCMF committee has decided to adopt ( and not resist!) new technology . From now on the syllabus will be distributed by the festival website and with hard copies only being available on request and with a stamped addressed envelope. We shall still have some hard copies available from some music shops and libraries; schools will be sent a hard copy. Do remember to include your email address when you return your application form as this will be our preferred method of communication with you from now on. David Capp Chairman September 2012

Rules of the Festival 1

The object of the Festival is to raise the standard of amateur music making by giving its practitioners the opportunity to perform in public and under concert conditions, to benefit both by securing a professional assessment of their work and from the opportunity of hearing their fellow performers. An amateur is someone who does not derive his/her living from the branch of performance, defined by the class title in which s/he seeks to enter the festival. In any ensemble, all members must adhere to that principle.

The Festival is open to residents of Norfolk and to such others as may be admitted by the Festival Committee.

Certificates may be awarded in the categories Outstanding Performance, Highly Commended Performance, Commended Performance, and Promising Performance. In classes A1, B1A,K14, M1A, Q1A and R a certificate will be given but no award shown.

RECITAL CLASSES These classes were first held in 2006 and have proved increasingly popular with our most advanced entrants. There is no recital concert for 2013. OUT

Entry to this class is for SOLO performers only. There is a single category of entry with no age segregation.

RC Recital Class - Minimum Grade 8 Standard Own Choice of music and with a maximum time of 20 minutes (including tuning and setting up where appropriate). Appropriate choice of programme will form part of the adjudication. Notes Performers should plan their programme carefully. It should be balanced, showing variety and contrast of style and mood but also favourably reflect the entrant’s performing style. Stage presence and presentation of the music is an important part of performance and will be part of the evaluation. The entry costs is £18.00. This reflects the extended time required for each performance. Please state your instrument/s on the entry form – this is essential. The adjudicator most appropriate for your instrument will be allocated. IMPORTANT NOTE: All entrants into the recital classes will be heard in the same session (according to instrument) as this allows for a fairer adjudication and for other entrants to listen to each other. The timing is likely to be early evening and no changes to timing will be allowed. ???? The festival considers it vital that a good presentation and introduction of your programme to the whole audience ( not just the adjudicator) is part of your performance. The adjudicator will comment separately on a) musical performance AND b) presentation from the stage as part of the response to the performance.

MENTION MINI RECITALS HERE

If you are in doubt about the meaning of presentation then please contact the Chairman (01603 712601) or the MUSIC DIRECTOR DJ 6

ADJUDICATOR : David Campbell David Campbell is internationally recognised as one of Britain’s finest musicians and was described by the doyen of British clarinettists, the late Jack Brymer, as ‘the finest player of his generation’. Much of Campbell’s early career was spent as a clarinettist in the field of contemporary music as a member of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’ chamber ensemble, ’The Fires of London’. Over recent years David Campbell has developed the solo and chamber music strands of his career, performing in over forty countries with leading orchestras and ensembles. His repertoire is wide-ranging but he still champions new works, many of which have been written for him. Recent engagements have included concerts in the Czech Republic, Venezuela, the USA and Mexico. Premières over the past few years have included concertos, written for him by USA composers, Peter Lieuwen ,and Charles Fitts, as well as clarinet quintets by Richard Blackford Roger Steptoe and Gareth Churchill and a septet by John Metcalf. In June 2010, David gave a series of televised masterclasses at the Domaine Forget International Academy in Charlevoix, Quebec. His recording of Peter Lieuwen’s ‘River of Crystal Light’ was released in May 2007 and the following year ‘Reflections’ - Clarinet Concertos by Carl Davis, Gerald Finzi and Graham Fitkin with the Aurora Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Collon. In 2010 a recording of the Septet by Welsh composer, John Metcalf, was issued to great critical acclaim and Richard Blackford’s Quintet, “Full Moon” will be released on the Nimbus label in June 2012. A recording of Roger Steptoe’s Quintet is planned for 2013. David Campbell is also passionate about music education. He holds positions as a ‘Visiting Professor’ at Canterbury Christ Church University and ‘Head of Woodwind’ at Westminster School. Since 2002 David has been Artistic Director of Musicfest, a combined summer school and festival in Aberystwyth. He also gives a week of masterclasses at Dartington International Summer School.

J CHAMBER GROUPS / ORCHESTRAS / BANDS /SCHOOLS MUSIC QUERY SUITABLE LETTER FOR THIS VENUE : The Salvation Army Citadel for Orchestras and Bands. Bands will take place on Wed 6 March 2013 .6.30 pm start. Orchestras will take place on Wed 13 March 2013. 6.30 pm start. Schools Music may also take place on Monday 4 March 2013 and/or Tuesday 5 March 2013 and/or Thursday 14 March 2013 and Friday 15 March 2013 at the United Reformed Church. ADJUDICATOR :. David Campbell for Bands – see under Woodwind and Brass for his details. Tim Wells for Orchestras – see under Strings for his details. In the following classes where Ensemble is stated, this is intended for groups of three players or more. Junior means Players up to and including Year 6 Intermediate means Players up to and including Year 9 Senior means Players of school age Open may include adults.

SH The Shorten Ensemble Class This is a prestigious class for Instrumentalists or Singers of 18 years and under. There are four categories for entry: a. b. c. d.

Brass and Saxophone Woodwind but not Saxophone Strings Vocal or any combination (eg Brass and Strings)

The total prize money of £200 will be divided so that the winning performance for each group will receive £50. This will be at the discretion of the adjudicator. The adjudicator will decide which group will receive the Shorten Cup. The ensemble should consist of at least three performers giving a balanced programme not exceeding fifteen minutes. All aspects of performance, including programme choice and presentation will be taken into account when adjudicating this class. Please state which category you are entering on the entry form. In response to many requests we will try to hear all the Shorten Ensemble Classes on the same day so that all entrants can hear the other entries. However, this will inevitably mean that the adjudicator may not be the most appropriate one for your instrument. Feedback from last year tells us that hearing all classes at the same time proved popular.

CERTIFICATES AND ADJUDICATION – some useful information Norfolk County Music Festival is not an examination – the emphasis is on enjoyment and learning. Therefore the adjudicators use their time to talk and to explain how you can achieve an even better performance. In classes where certificates are awarded – these are most classes and those classes that are adjudication only are indicated - then a grading system is used rather than close marking. The categories are:

Outstanding Performance – an exceptional performance, both artistically and technically Highly Commended – technically accurate showing artistic interpretation and imagination Commended Performance – a fairly accurate performance with the beginnings of artistic understanding Promising Performance – a good but limited performance Well done for taking part Certificate

The adjudicator may use his or her discretion to award Highly Commended Performance Plus and Commended Performance Plus where the performance merits this but is not quite the standard for the higher category. Feedback from adjudicators tells us that they appreciate this flexibility and they usually explain their decision making to entrants.
