SIXTY junior school children took part in a concert which aimed to tackle some of the challenges of growing up.

The Thetford Voices half-day singing workshop, held in Thetford Grammar School, included five schools and members of the Thetford Music Project who all sang for parents and friends.

Each school contributed an individual item alongside five songs worked on by all singers through the term.

The result was a demanding range of styles and approaches from folk to show tune and film score with sings from Les Miserables, Joseph and Danny Kaye's Hans Christian Andersen, country anthems and an art-song which was a setting of Emily Dickinson's teen-angst poem I'm Nobody - who are you?

A second theme was brought out in two individual numbers - a rendition of Julie Gold's From a Distance, sung by two Queensway pupils, and an original composition sung by Norwich Road called Nos somos amigos com todos.

The combined choirs then celebrated with Johnny Nash's I can See Clearly Now (the rain has gone).
