Town Lectures and Concerts 2019


This year will be the twentieth series of the highly popular Town Lectures and Concerts.
The lectures present Ipswich, with its rich history and cultural background through the
eyes of Suffolk-based speakers and with concert performances from local musicians.

Concert 10 October


DRUM & BRASS

Trumpets: Mark Cheadle & Kevin Woollard  French Horn: Lisa Cheadle
Trombone: David Hart  Tuba: Trevor Daldry  Percussion: Don Young
Drum & Brass have been together for about six years. Unusually for a brass quintet, the line-up also features a percussionist, which not only enables them to include solos for percussion instruments, but also to have a rhythmic percussion accompaniment in the more boisterous pieces they perform.

Full details of the 2019 series here:  Town Lectures & Concerts
