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 – December 10


 Conductor: Alan Loader

Based in and around Felixstowe, The Dorian Singers are a friendly non-auditioned choir of approximately 40 voices who meet for the pleasure of singing together and also to perform for the public. Their repertoire is extremely diverse, and includes both accompanied and unaccompanied music. In 2015 they collaborated with Ipswich Bach Choir to perform Mendelssohn’s popular oratorio Elijah.
This afternoon’s concert – their first as part of this series – features a selection of items from their
annual Christmas concert, together with carols for choir and audience.

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
