weekend of top-class chamber music - include Strauss’ String Sextet from the composer’s late opera, Capriccio, Schoenberg’s ‘Verklärte Nacht’, Op.4, Britten’s String Quartet No.1 in D, Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op.115, Jörg Widmann’s String Quartet No.1 and Beethoven’s String Quartet in E flat, Op.127. And giving youth a platform, there’ll be a free admission foyer concert by Norfolk Young Musicians at the John Innes Centre on Saturday, 22nd September, 2018, from 6.00pm to 6.45pm followed by the AGM and refreshments. The work of the Norfolk Centre for Young Musicians is inspiring to say the least and offers access and excellence for musicians aged from 8 to18 and no child of identified musical excellence is denied access to NCYM because of lack of financial means. The centre is not for the complete beginner but for talented young musicians in the early stages of learning who are able to demonstrate a technical and musical fluency that will be welcomed alongside their more experienced peers. Students work in ensembles with professional musicians to achieve and develop high levels of performance, musicianship and composition in both instrumental and vocal skills. Sessions are held every Saturday during term time from 9.00am to 1.30pm at The Arc, City of Norwich School. Additionally, NCYM offers training placements for Guildhall School students wishing to prepare for careers as musicians working in schools and to lead the way in conservatoire/school partnerships in Europe.

The centre is sponsored by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Norfolk Music Hub with space provided by the City of Norwich School. Additional support comes from Norfolk & Norwich Chamber Music.
