About 150 children from across the county are involved in the concert which will be at Epic Studios, in Norwich, on June 27 at 7.30pm.

The performance - which is part of the Young Norfolk Arts Festival - will be able to be watched live at the venue or online via the Epic website.

This year the Canada connection is a transatlantic twist on last year’s link up with Liverpool.

Sistema in Norwich’s Martineau Orchestra, comprised of school children from Catton Grove Primary and Norwich Primary Academy, will link up with Canadian performers from Ontario.

Sistema in Norwich’s artistic director Marcus Patteson said: “Last year’s concert went really well; the kids were fantastic. “This year will be scarier because of the previously untried technology we are using and there’s a lot more invested in it.”

The orchestras will be composing four new pieces inspired by the elements, with the Norwich project creating music based around water and wind while Canada are focusing on fire and earth.

Mr Patteson said: “Sistema uses music for social impact to give young people a different take on life and realise their potential.”

Sistema in Norwich takes its inspiration from the Venezuelan movement El Sistema which has nearly one million participants.

• The concert will take place at Epic Studios in Magdalen Street, Norwich, on June 27 at 7.30pm.

Ticket prices and how to book will be confirmed at a later date.
