A Celebration of Schools' Music

Around 1,600 pupils from 45 schools across the county will take over Snape Maltings Concert Hall for the annual A Celebration of Schools' Music.

Celebration is the result of a long-standing partnership between Snape Maltings Learning & Inclusion (Aldeburgh Music) and Suffolk County Music Service.

Schools from across Suffolk are given the opportunity to participate in this well-established event. Hosted by Snape Maltings at the world-famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall, Celebration encourages children (of all ages and stages in Suffolk L A maintained, Academies and Free schools) to enjoy and participate in music.

Did you know…2017 marks Celebration's 30th birthday!
