The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE), in collaboration with Orchestras Live and Norfolk Music Hub, is delighted to be returning to King’s Lynn with a project for KS2 pupils called ‘The Life of the Sea’ in the Summer Term of 2024.

We are looking for six schools in years 4-6 to join the afternoon performance at 1.30pm*, with a maximum of 2 classes per participating school, and a maximum of three staff per class of 30.

* This performance will not be open to the public as the capacity will be taken up with participating students.


What will pupils be doing?

  • These interactive concerts include pupils singing a sea shanty and a song about climate change and either playing or performing body percussion in a storm piece alongside the OAE.
  • The concert will be set like a 70’s chat show called Tonight with Adam Courting and the children will be the Studio Audience.
  • The show will feature an actor, Adam and singer, Tim who will act and sing to tell the story of Tim’s “discovery” of The Great Pacific Garbage patch.
  • Woven into our story will be baroque songs and instrumental pieces played by the OAE as well as brand new music performed by your children.


  • Once registered a representative from each school will be expected to attend the Teacher Training session on Wednesday 17th April from 4pm-5.30pm. The venue will be in a King’s Lynn Primary School. There you will receive access to the resources to rehearse with your school.
  • May/June 2024: half day workshop in each school (dates to be arranged at the training session)
  • Wednesday 10th July: Concert day!
    • 1pm- 2.30pm rehearsal and concert at the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange

What’s the cost?

  • We will be asking each school to contribute £200 to take part in this project and the remaining costs will be met by OL, NMH and the OAE.

Please note: places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
