Thousands of school children were able to rock out to classical music after they were paid a visit by professional musicians in the genre.

Classical Music Rocks (CMR), a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2016, has made 25 visits to schools across West Norfolk in a bid to introduce a different genre of music to children.

An organiser said: 'Feedback from children and teachers has been excellent.'

Raphaela Papadakis, award-winning opera singer and key musician with CMR, will be performing in Hunstanton Princess Theatre alongside the Opera Boys on Friday, February 9.

CMR will be hosting a concert at Snettisham Parish Church at 6.30pm on Thursday, May 3 with violinist Joo Yeon Sir and a performance by guitarist Laura Snowden will be held on Saturday, July 7 at 12pm.
