Young musicians have the opportunity to learn a few tips from Beethoven's playbook at an upcoming workshop.

The Wymondham Youth Music Society has teamed up with the Norfolk and Norwich Festival for the event, which will feature musicians from Cambridge-based orchestra, the Britten Sinfonia.

A spokesman from the festival said the workshop was an exciting chance for young musicians to learn from talented professionals, and learn about the Beethoven theme of this year's festival.

The spokesman said: 'Pupils will have the opportunity to work alongside professional musicians to gain insight into the instruments, repertoire and concert setting.'

The workshop, which is free for society members and £6 for others, will take place on May 4, from 6pm, in the South Hall of Wymondham High Academy. For more information call 01953 529158, or visit
