Suffolk County Music Service

Suffolk’s premier youth music groups are all set for a season of quality music-making.

The county’s talented young musicians are starting to look forward to a spring/summer of rehearsals and performances. Beginning in the Easter Holidays, their annual residential course will be taking place at Framlingham College over four days.

With brass, percussion, string and woodwind players, as part of the County Music Groups programme, the Easter Concert is then held at Snape Maltings Concert Hall on 10th April when they will be performing pieces such as Symphony No.5 by Shostakovich, Concert Prelude by Philip Sparke, Centuria by James Swearingen and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik – Mozart. The programme offers a varied range of activities throughout the year. This includes rehearsal days, an Easter residential course at Framlingham College, European concert tours and performances at Snape Maltings.
