Hundreds of primary school children from four Lowestoft schools will perform with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Marina Theatre later this month.

The concert, which will include a variation of a sea shanty performed by all the schools together as a mass choir alongside members of the orchestra, was organised through a partnership between Children and the Arts and Festival Bridge.

Each school will also perform its own song inspired by the Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’, which was composed by the children in workshops led by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Sam Glazer from Royal Philharmonic Orchestra said: “It’s been fantastic working with these young people from Lowestoft over the last few months.

“Inspired by Shakespeare’s text, and supported by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, they’ve written some brilliant lyrics and melodies - we’re really looking forward to sharing their new Tempest songs.”

The performance will be at the Marina Theatre from 1.30pm to 2.45pm on Wednesday, May 23.
