Ipswich Music Day 2022

Ipswich Music Day – Sunday July 3rd 2022

Ipswich Arts Association hosted four “Classical Stages’ as part of Ipswich Music Day.
St. Margarets Church,  Bethesda Baptist Church, Wolsey Gallery and The Masonic Hall.

In addition The Lower Tudor Room in Christchurch Mansion will host two organisations;
Suffolk Poetry Society and The Ipswich Childrens Book Group.

This was the 29th year IAA has run the Classical Stages. Originally the programmes were largely classical in style, but IAA has been pleased to widen the field of musical style and genre, which more accurately reflects the exciting range of music performers within Ipswich and the surrounding area.

Thank you to all the performers and audience who helped to make this years
Music day such a success. It was good to be back!

Here is the programme of the IAA Classical Stages at Music Day July 3rd 2022
