Gippeswyk    Singers

St John’s Passion
Email from a member of the audience:

I so enjoyed the Gippeswyk St John Passion last evening. The work isn't easy by any means and the choir did a fabulous job. It was also good to see choir members taking the small parts, and is testament to the quality of singers you have in the choir. Please pass on my thanks for a really enjoyable and moving performance.




A PreTour Concert will be held locally at St Andrew's Church, Rushmere St Andrew, Ipswich IP5 1DJ on Sunday 24th June at 7:30pm. Tickets are £5 -   available on the door,  in advance from any choir member or email:


Gippeswyk Singers 2018 Summer Concert Tour


Gippeswyk Singers are excited to announce a summer concert tour to the West Country this June with concerts in Bath and Frome. They are performing a lovely programme of both a cappella and accompanied music conducted by Geoff Lavery, including the world premiere of choir member Brian Latchem’s ethereally beautiful An Abundance of Blessings written for choir, baritone and harp (Anna Wynne - harpist). Another highlight is Bob Chilcott’s Little Jazz Mass accompanied by Peter Willsher (piano).



Gippeswyk Singers are a delightfully expressive and accomplished chamber choir under the musical direction of Geoff Lavery. Having formed the choir over 40 years ago, Geoff returned as their conductor 6 years ago, organising tours to Holland (2014)  and Yorkshire (2016), and was the inspiration behind the huge success of their Snape Maltings debut last year (Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius,) achieving a high standard of musical excellence with Beccles Choral Society and the Lambeth Orchestra. They will be back at Snape again in May 2019 to perform Verdi’s Requiem, this time with Phoenix Singers added to the chorus as well! From September 2018, Geoff will be the official musical director of all 3 choirs.

Bipolar UK (Ipswich) and Sound On Talking Newspaper (Ipswich & District) are the local charities that Gippeswyk Singers has chosen to support with their concerts this season.
