Leaping Hare, Thetford’s Great Information Centre, is organising two fundraising events to support local school children achieve a dream of performing at the Royal Albert Hall!
Earlier this year we announced that Music for Youth has invited Norfolk Music Hub and Norwich Theatre Royal to put together a Massed Ensemble Performance in the 2019 MFY Proms at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
The Music for Youth Proms showcase the extraordinary talent from thousands of the UK’s young musicians, creating an unforgettable experience for the groups performing and the audience. Norfolk’s massed ensemble performance takes place on 13 November 2019.
Building on our existing partnership with Norwich Theatre Royal on the Norfolk Schools’ Opera Project, which took place in June 2019, the massed ensemble performance reprises a shortened version of the new children’s opera ‘A Kind of Magic Flute’, alongside an orchestra made up of the Norfolk County Symphonic Wind Band and Norfolk County Strings.
Leaping Hare’s fundraising events aim to support children from Thetford schools to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The events are:
- Friday 20 September | Curry & Quiz Night | More details >>
- Saturday 21 September | 80’s Night & Auction | More details >>
Can you help us get all of the 600 children taking part to London for this amazing opportunity?
A donation of £25 will pay for one child to travel to the Royal Albert Hall, a donation of £750 will pay for a whole class to travel.
