Children singing under lights

The 2020 CASMA performances will be celebrating Norfolk’s history through song.

Classes of KS1 and KS2 pupils are invited to take part in performances in Diss and Norwich (max 30 per school).

The KS2 title is Home Sweet Home – Songs based around the history of Norfolk, while the KS1 title is Prehistoric! A song cycle based on Fossils, written by local composer Tony Bailey. This theme will link with cross-curricular study and, in particular, the mammoth skeleton found at West Runton in North Norfolk.

We will be providing the music learning resources from early January, CPD sessions, and ticket links for the concerts. We expect all schools to commit to practicing with their students in-school ensure they are performance ready.

Please note that KS2 performances have been filled however there are limited spaces available for KS1 and we are looking into adding another date due to popular demand!
