Gippeswyk    Singers

Press Release

 

An exciting season of music for 2018/19

 

Gippeswyk Singers enjoyed 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.
