Ipswich Music Day 2024


Ipswich Music Day – Sunday July 7th 2024

Thank you!

A big thank you to all our performers and audience for making the
IAA classical stages a successful part of Ipswich Music Day 2024, despite
the downpours which did nothing to dampen the spirits of all involved.
We look forward to  seeing many of you again next year –
– with fingers crossed for better weather!

This year will be the 33rd time the IAA has run the Classical Stages. As the title
suggests, originally the programmes were largely classical in style, however over
the years Ipswich Arts Association has been pleased to broaden the field of
musical style and genre presented, to more accurately reflect the exciting
range of music performed within Ipswich and the surrounding area.

The event is open to all amateur vocal, instrumental groups,
school vocal and instrumental groups, and soloists.

Admission to Ipswich Music Day including the IAA Classical Stages is FREE
with a donation to the charity collection much appreciated.
