The 2011 Norfolk County Music Festival begins
All over Norfolk musicians, young and old, have been perfecting their pieces to perform for a local musical festival.
This year's Norfolk County Music Festival is packed full of events and famous visitors during the fortnight of celebrations, which started this Monday.
The festival has been going since 1926 and aims to raise the standard of amateur music making and the spoken word, by offering the opportunity to people to perform in public in uplifting venues in front of specialist and professional adjudicators.
Over the fortnight there are classes all over the city, including St Andrew's Hall on St Andrews Street, The Assembly House on Theatre Street, City of Norwich School on Eaton Road and the United Reform Church on Princes Street.
Elsewhere in the county there will be an event at the King Edward School on Gaywood Road in Kings Lynn.
At the end of the festival there are two concerts, a recital concert at The Assembly House at 7pm Friday, March 25 and a more informal afternoon concert at Thorpe High School on Laundry Lane in Thorpe St Andrew at 3pm Sunday, March 27.
This is an open festival, with the only requirement being that amateur status is observed.
