The 2019 Norfolk & Norwich festival was underway last night with a truly breathtaking high-wire performance by Chris Bullzini tightrope walking his way across the historic city.

Norfolk Schools Opera

Last month, Norfolk Schools Opera held the first opening performance at the Theatre Royal – where schools came together for a day of workshops and performances. – The project will eventually culminate in some outstanding performances in 2019 – Personally I can’t wait to see how the children’s ideas will transform the theatre stage!

“2018-19 Norwich Theatre Royal and Norfolk Music Hub are collaborating in a year-long programme, working with hundreds of pupils, teachers, and young gifted and talented musicians from across Norfolk”

Chineke! @ Kings College | Cambridge

Had the pleasure of photographing the incredible rehearsals of Chineke! at Kings College Chapel in Cambridge a coupe of weeks ago…

Having heard about Chineke! I was eager to hear them in person and wow… the performance was simply sublime.
The acoustics of Kings College Chapel lent themselves perfectly to the orchestra.

To be there, while the chapel was practically empty during rehearsals was certainly a real treat!

Talented Young Musicians in Cambridge

A recent commission saw me at St Bede’s school in Cambridge for orchestral rehearsals, featuring some of the top musicians of the area as they prepared for their much-anticipated performance.
The young musicians came together at St Bede for Three days of full rehearsals and fine tuning as the school was turned into a real music environment.
The brief was to document some of the musicians, demonstrating their talent, passion and excitement of the rehearsals.
The talent of these youngsters blew me away, especially some of the percussion guys, who had that edgy cool vibe that could quite easily see them ‘hit the big time’ in the future.

Norfolk Schools Project | Performance at Norwich Theatre Royal

Sunday’s performance on stage at the Norwich Theatre Royal by the children involved in the spring edition of Norfolk Schools Project was a pretty special one.

Each year I’m blown away by the amazing quality of their performances and indeed the confidence they show.. The professional team working with the children behind the scenes work so hard and honestly those kids seem to get so much out of the experience. Great stuff.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival Gala Dinner

Norfolk & Norwich Festival Gala evening was the place to be last week and fortunately for me, I was asked to shoot images of the proceedings throughout the evening.

Crica were one of the highlights of the evening, with their stunning array of acrobatic skill and fine performances, wowing the invited guests with jaw dropping displays.

It’s a joy to see so many terrific performances in one place!
