Children singing under lights

*URGENT UPDATE: Due to the current circumstances regarding the Coronavirus many schools have made the decision not to attend CASMA events. Therefore in light of this we have decided to reschedule these performances for later in the year so that everyone can still take part. We shall be in touch with all schools and ticket holders to confirm a new date once we know more. Please note that all tickets will be fully transferable to the new events. Anyone who cannot make the new dates will be entitled to a full refund. Thank you for your understanding.*

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 expect all schools to commit to practicing with their students in-school ensure they are performance ready.
