Town Lectures and Concerts 2017

The eighteenth series of these highly popular lectures and concerts begins in January.
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 – June 8


St. Helen’s School choir was formed in 2013 to bring together 38 talented and
enthusiastic boys and girls. They often sing without accompaniment and in
unison, harmony and rounds. Today’s choice of songs reflects the
multicultural makeup of the school and promotes the cultural diversity of Ipswich.

The Oaks School choir is made up of mostly Year 6 pupils who have collaborated on a
production to be performed at the Red Rose Theatre. They will be performing songs and
raps that they have helped to compose and arrange, as well as more well-known tunes.
