More than 300 students from eight Norfolk schools have come together to take part in a choral concert in Norwich.

The event, at St Andrew's Hall last night, saw the pupils perform three pieces of classical music.

Conducted by Andrew Morley, the programme included Fauré's Requiem op 48, Walton Crown Imperial and Zadok the Priest.

Schools taking part were the City of Norwich School, Flegg High School, Hethersett Old Hall School, Norwich School, Notre Dame High School, Wymondham College, Thetford Grammar School and Thorpe St Andrew High School, accompanied by the Norfolk County Youth Orchestra.

Ian Cooper, assistant head of Norfolk County Council's Music Service, which organises the event, said: 'The festival has been running for a number of years and the pupils really enjoy it.

'It's not something that all of the schools can do on their own and having the orchestral accompaniment gives them a unique opportunity to come together and sing together in a big concert at St Andrew's Hall.'
