Gippeswyk Singersenjoyed a weekend of hot sunny weather on their summer concert
tour to the West Country in June which saw them warmly welcomed at the Frome Festival
and also performing at the beautiful Saint Michael’s Without in Bath. Lovely weather
for sight seeing (or was it too hot?!) and a wonderful time travelling and singing
together made for a memorable trip to Somerset.
Rehearsals are now underway for a New Year Concert with Martlesham Brass on Sunday
6th January which will include Benjamin Britten’s “A Ceremony of Carols”. Once Christmas
is over the choir will be focused with great anticipation on preparing a Spring concert
at Snape Maltings.
Conductor Geoff Lavery is the musical director of 3 Suffolk choirs which are working
in collaboration to present Verdi’s “Requiem” at Snape Maltings Concert Hall on Saturday
11th May 2019. Beccles Choral Society and Phoenix Singers will be joining Gippeswyk
Singers and the Lambeth Orchestra for what will be a special highlight on Suffolk’s
musical calendar next year.
Tickets are already selling and are available from choir members and Snape Maltings
Box Office. Gippeswyk Singers support local charities with their concerts so do come
along and hear a delightfully expressive chamber choir and give a boost to some
worthy local causes.
