A Celebration of Schools' Music

    A Celebration of Schools’ Music is the result of a long-standing and productive partnership between Aldeburgh Music and Suffolk County Council, with all ages and stages of Suffolk maintained schools (primary, middle and high) being represented during the week.

    During Celebration, the performers are treated just like professionals, with a dressing room, crew and technical staff. Each school has a dress rehearsal for their own performance, after which everyone comes together at the end of the day to rehearse the specially commissioned finale piece.
