This exciting project aims to provides ensemble music making opportunities to young people in Norfolk. We offer a monthly Training Orchestra, a monthly Youth Orchestra, and a weekly Youth Choir ... In 2014, partly due to reductions in government funding of local music education, the landscape of available musical ensembles for students working at an intermediate level, changed. Although great opportunities to access intermediate ensembles subsidised by government still exist, the changes were substantial. This in turn meant that one particular model of operating ceased to be accessible - namely, the provision of a youth orchestra which meets monthly ... The Orchestrate! Project aims to offer musical opportunities which do not rely on government funding in order to operate on a day-to-day basis - hopefully being able to provide stability in provision, regardless of the ever changing climate of governmental priorities.’

Formed originally in 1973 at the East Anglian School 'to give the partially sighted pupils of the school the opportunity to learn how to read music and play brass instruments within a group. At that time it was not easy to convince the leading lights within the school that their scheme would be worthwhile and plausible due to the wide spectrum of eyesight disabilities within each child ... The school’s closure in 1985 led to a few uncertain years as quite a few of the players were boarders at the school so subsequently had to leave the band to return to their homes all across the country ... In 1998 the band was fortunate enough to secure Lottery Funding which enabled a whole set of new instruments to be purchased ... The old instruments were passed over to local youngsters and the GYB Youth Band came into existence. Both bands have gone from strength to strength and through dedication, commitment and persistence of individuals and players'.

Norwich Citadel Band was established in 1882 following a visit by General William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army, who came to preach at the newly opened corps (church) based in a former roller skating rink in the heart of the old medieval city of Norwich. The General implored its citizens to "Get a drum and rouse Norwich from one end to the other”. This directive was immediately acted upon, instruments were purchased and a band was formed ... Today the band is very much involved in the life of the city and provides music for many civic, church and cultural events including the annual Lord Mayor's Civic Service and the Remembrance Day Parade.

‘The Band was formed in November 1974 by a small group of villagers who were keen to start a brass band. With donations of monies and loans by founder members, the Band was able to purchase a set of instruments, from the folded Stibbard Band, to start its playing history. With money raised over the years, these old tattered instruments were replaced one by one and a music library of more than 800 pieces compiled ... Taverham Band is a great group of people who really enjoy entertaining their public. But more than just being a group of musicians they have a great social life and spend a lot of time together outside of the rehearsal room and concert venue.

‘Built in 1818, the now Grade II listed Norwich Street building first housed a coachworks. It was said to have had a high reputation, making carriages for the nobility and even some foreign royalty. After the coachbuilding business declined, in 1908 the building was put up for sale and was purchased for use as a public hall ... Through time the hall has become a hub for theatre, live music and other cultural events in the town, but by 2009 was starting to show its age, and needed a major refurbishment. In December 2011 the hall reopened after an 18 month and £2.3 million refurbishment and extension. The Hall is now a multi-use community facility capable of accommodating professional shows and community activities and is ready to be a part of Dereham life for another 200 years.’

'The largest parish church in England ... In 1942 the church was completely gutted during a German air raid leaving only the Norman tower and the walls standing. With the aid of a War Damage Commission grant and fund raising by local people and businesses the church was rebuilt (architect - Stephen Dykes Bower). The Church was reconsecrated in 1961 ... On December 9th, 2011 the Lord Bishop of Norwich designated St Nicholas Church, Great Yarmouth a Minster Church. From then on, its official title is The Minster Church of St Nicholas ... The organ was built in 1882 by William Hill, one of the best English organ builders of his time ... Although the organ still sounds wonderful it is in dire need of restoration ...'

King’s Lynn Minster possesses a fine four-part choir performing, to a high standard, repertoire that spans from the 16th century to the present day ... The Minster organ is one of the most written about organs and it is without doubt a landmark in the development of organ building in this country. John Snetzler’s first large instrument, only ever exceeded by a small margin, by his organ for Beverley Minster, this organ was acclaimed the finest in the country – a claim too often made for many organs, but in this case, one affirmed by Holdich when he repaired and added pedals to the organ 100 years later. It established Snetzler’s reputation as the leading organ builder of the second half of the 18th century and organ maker to the King ...’

'The recitals are held in what used to be the great hall of a late Jacobean house designed and built by Sir Roger Townshend with his Master Mason William Edge. Later paved in marble by William Kent and embellished in the C18th style, this room epitomises the dual spirit of Raynham Hall. Lofty, elegant and flooded with light it also has a clear but gentle resonance which is perfect for the intimate chamber music presented at the Raynham Recitals.'
