Norfolk Music Hub, in partnership with British Army Band Colchester, are excited to offer all Wind, Brass and Percussion players of grade V standard and above the opportunity to come along to Monday Night Ensembles and play with our flagship groups – Norfolk Students’ Jazz Orchestra and Norfolk County Symphonic Windband.

These taster sessions will be a great opportunity for students who may be considering joining an ensemble to get a taste of what it will be like. They will meet other talented young musicians and have the opportunity to learn with experienced conductors and professional musicians from British Army Band Colchester.

  • Times:
    • Jazz Orchestra 6.10-7.10pm
