Town Lectures and Concerts 2015


 The fifteenth series of these highly popular lectures and concerts is now underway.
The lectures present Ipswich, with its rich history and cultural background through the eyes of Suffolk-based speakers. Once again the series incorporates concert performances from local musicians which highlight music through the ages and in a variety of styles.

Next in series
Concert – October 8

Soprano Deborah Edwards  Mezzo Barbara Windsor  Tenor Julian Ochwat
Gary Griffiths  Accompanist Lisa Cheadle


Four Voices came together some seven years ago, since when their repertoire has grown to
encompass a wide variety of musical styles, from opera to musical theatre, folk and art song.
Their many concert appearances have raised several thousand pounds for a
variety of charities, including Children in Need, AIDS victims in Africa,
and almost £1,000 for the Ipswich Special Care Baby Unit.
They perform frequently at weddings and private functions, and current engagements
take them through to 2016.

IAA Lunchtime Concerts – 2016


We will be starting the process of getting together the programme of lunchtime concerts
for the 2016 season, after Easter this year. These popular monthly events provide
an opportunity for groups of local singers or instrumentalists, who may not always have
many opportunities to perform, to give a 45 minutes concert.
If you would like to suggest someone or be considered yourself,
please contact as soon as possible. By phone:  Joy Bounds on 01473 250400
or via email:  joy@bounds9307.fsworld.co.uk
