Hundreds of west Norfolk children performed live in front of parents and teachers at the 19th annual 'Schools Make Music' concert at the Corn Exchange in King's Lynn.
The concert brought together primary and secondary schools in a programme of popular music enabling young musicians of all ages and abilities to experience performing in a professional theatre in front of a live audience.
The varied programme ranged from choirs to a concert band to musical groups playing a variety of instruments.
Derek Oldfield, music co-ordinator for the concert, said: 'Over the years quite a few people who performed here as schoolchildren are now professional musicians. There is some fantastic talent out there and events like this help us discover that flair. You never know what you'll discover from year to year.'
Among those taking part were 30 pupils from Eastgate Academy who performed an African drum performance, and there were also songs from Reffley Community School choir, among others.

Eastgate Academy Principal Linda Hothersall said: 'We really enjoy getting involved with events such as this. The children loved learning the drums and I am so proud of the group that performed.'
The event was organised by Trinity Rotary Club with support from the Lynn and Priory Rotary Clubs. Net proceeds from ticket and programme sales will be shared by the participating schools.
