Christian Youth concert in Sheringham 

Anglia Youth Band 314 AR2012 : The musical talents of local young people will be the focus of a special celebration concert taking place in Sheringham on Saturday 28 April. 

The concert will feature the Anglia Youth Band of The Salvation Army (pictured). The band comprises 30 young musicians aged between 14 - 30, drawn from Salvation Army Centres in the East of England, from Peterborough in the North, to Felixstowe in the South.

“The band exists to proclaim the Gospel through music, and during the 30 years it has been formed, the group has been privileged to perform throughout the UK, and at several European venues” explained Bandmaster Paul Winterbourne. “Our programme includes arrangements of traditional hymns and modern worship songs, foot-tapping marches, and songs from the musicals”.

Hosted by North Norfolk Radio’s Greg Powles, the event will also feature “Gospel Voices", the new youth gospel choir based at Sheringham Baptist Church, and Sheringham-based Jefferson's Mandolins.  Pupils from Sheringham High School will also be performing at the concert.

All funds raised will go to “Send My Friend To School” - the Campaign for Global Education.  The Salvation Army Centre in Cremer Street, Sheringham will be the venue for what promises to be an extremely entertaining evening.  Doors open at 7.00pm and admission is £5, although under 16s go free.
