As the tuba player in the Suffolk Youth Wind Orchestra, Year 9 Music Scholar Francis took part in a full day’s rehearsal on Sunday for a forthcoming tour to Germany.

The orchestra’s members were joined on this occasion by the Band of the Parachute Regiment, playing alongside the army musicians as they explored the pieces they will perform on tour. At the end of the afternoon, the two bands raised the roof of the Northgate Arts Centre in a thrilling concert for parents and friends, the highlight being an exciting pairing of music from the film Shrek with a selection of themes from Game of Thrones.
