YOUTH SAMBA BAND (BLOCO)
NORCA & Sistema in Norwich has been awarded funding from the Arts Council’s Let’s Create Jubilee Fund by the Norfolk Community Foundation, to create a new carnival music group for children and young people. We will be launching a new, weekly youth samba band, based at our headquarters on Colegate.
Youth Samba Band
Time: 2 to 3.30pm
Dates: Starts on Saturday 30 April 2022 (summer term ends Sat 16 July)
Venue: Martineau Memorial Hall, 21 Colegate, Norwich NR3 1BN
Cost: £2 per person per week
Age: 10 +
The group will be run by Duda Moleque and Anna Patteson, two experienced Samba teachers and group leaders.
All instruments provided.
No experience necessary, just come and have a go.
New people can join any week up to 28 May 2022 (when the group will close for the upcoming performances and reopen in September).
The group's first term will focus on working toward performances to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, including two at the Royal Norfolk Showground in June. We will also be working with professional brass musicians to create a new piece to celebrate the Jubilee.
