NORWICH SCHOOL PREPARES FOR HOSTRY FESTIVAL EVENTS

13 OCTOBER 2017

Preparations are in full swing as Norwich School prepares to host The Hostry Festival Classical Concert in the Blake Studio on Sunday evening, 7-9pm. The evening is a brand new event for the Hostry Festival which hopes to celebrate Norfolk’s young emerging musicians.

The Hostry Festival have partnered with Norfolk Music Hub and Norwich School to bring together the county’s top up and coming young performers of classical music. Norfolk’s next generation of musicians will be performing songs, piano, wind, strings and percussion, involving both original composition and much loved classical music. The guest of honour, and newly appointed concert patron, is Julian Lloyd Webber.

The evening begins with a trumpet fanfare written by Norwich School trumpet teacher Dave Land entitled ‘Cloister Fanfare’. This will be the premiere of the piece and includes Norwich School players India Riordan (L6B), Matthew James (L6B), Henry Lee (L6C), Shannon Lai (U6S) and Daniel Possener (M5S).Also performing from Norwich School are Alice Palmer (M5C), who will sing Antonio Caldara’s Sebben Crudele and Caitlin Obee (U6B) who plays George Enesco’s Cantabile et Presto on flute.

The event is the first of the two week programme of events held by the Hostry Festival, which includes The Norfolk Arts Awards where the Norwich School 2016 musical will be celebrated. Ms Ziegler and Mr Allain are nominated for the Dr Frank Bates Dance and Musical Theatre Award for their roles in the production of Sweeney Todd. The school is also delighted that Megan Blair (U6P) will be performing at the event having been invited following a performance at last year’s Blake Studio opening by festival co-founder and Artistic Director Stash Kirkbride. Megan will be one of the music acts featuring at the red carpet gala event on Friday 20th October at The Hostry, Norwich Cathedral.

Megan, as well as Director of Music Mr Allain took part in a BBC Radio Norfolk broadcast for the Hostry Festival last week, which you can listen to here.

Dave's trumpet can be heard on at least 11    NOW  THAT'S WHAT I CALL MUSIC    albums with: Katrina & the Waves, Nik Kershaw, Tracey Ullman, Starlight Express

She said making it big in Britain involves finding the right song. "I was not in the studio a lot last year, but this year I'm in a lot," she said. She recently recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios, made famous by The Beatles, and has a song on the way.

 
 

The soundtrack to school discos, the cementing in history of one-hit wonders, and the go-to for catchy pop songs, Now That's What I Call Music! has reached its 100th milestone.

Since 1983 Now albums have been released at a rate of three-a-year and a total of 120 million copies have been sold world-wide.

Their playlists have spent 654 weeks at number one, and the average household owns four volumes.

The name of the series came from a poster Virgin boss Richard Branson found in a bric-a-brac shop on Portobello Road, depicting a singing chicken and a pig exclaiming "Now that’s what I call music!".

Branson gave the poster to Virgin Records Co-Founder Simon Draper, and a couple of years later they thought the wise words of the porker could be a great slogan for the compilation idea they had come up with.

It could also explain why the latest version has a pig wearing sunglasses on its front cover.

Interestingly enough, Branson went on to marry the owner of the shop.

Number ones

Now albums have spent 654 weeks at number one, and the average household owns four volumes.
