London Mozart Players by the coast in a boat

Create Yarmouth, a new orchestral residency in Great Yarmouth, announces its programme with the world-renowned London Mozart Players.

Join us for the launch concert of Create Yarmouth, beginning with a thrilling and fun concert perfect for the whole family, including Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals.

With an exciting programme spanning 200 years and five countries, London Mozart Players will perform an array of family favourites including Mendelssohn’s sizzling String Symphony in B minor, the evocative Five Bagatelles by Finzi, Piazzolla’s tangos Oblivion and Libertango, and Bartok’s colourful Romanian Dances. To round off the evening, LMP will breathe life into Saint-Saëns brilliantly comic Carnival of the Animals. This exquisite and humorous collection of short movements depict a whole menagerie of animals from lions and fossils to pianists and cuckoos – a family classic that’s perfect for animal lovers of all ages!

The Create Yarmouth programme invites local people to create and perform music within Great Yarmouth, and culminates with a performance in July 2020. Musicians from London Mozart Players will be running community workshops for early years to elderly, and they are working with Creative Collisions to recruit Young Promoters who will work with industry professionals.

Students from 4 schools in the region will be taking part in creative workshops throughout 2020 with Sarah Freestone, multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger. Together they will work on a new piece as well as orchestral repertoire by 2 WCET violin groups, to be performed at the culmination concert:

Thursday 9 July
St George’s Theatre, Great Yarmouth
More details to be announced.

For this culmination event, there will be performances for school groups in the afternoon and for people connected with the participants and general public in the evening. The schools involved in this project are: Caister Academy, Lynn Grove Academy, Woodlands Primary Academy, and Wroughton Primary Federation.
