After a successful September concert, the 150-strong Trianon Symphony Orchestra and Choir will soon be commencing rehearsals for our winter concert on Saturday, 6 January, 7.30pm at the Corn Exchange Ipswich. We would like to welcome our sponsors for this concert, the combined Rotary Clubs of Ipswich. It is many years that we have had a community sponsor and thank them for their support for the arts in Ipswich.

The January programme consists of a mixture of seasonal pieces including Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride”, Sir Andrew Llyod Webber’s “Masquerade from the Phantom of the Opera” and John Rutter’s “Rejoice and be Merry”, performed by the full orchestra and choir and is sure to be a bright spot in those dark January days.

We are pleased to welcome back Professor Christopher Green, our founder and musical Director, after his illness during the summer. Chris was recently awarded the prestigious Lady Hilary Groves Prize 2023 from Making Music as part of their annual music awards and all the members are looking forward to congratulating Chris on this achievement.

Trianon Music Group meets for three major concerts a year in January, April and September, and rehearses for about six weeks prior to each one. In addition, we have four other concerts supporting local charities in the community with a smaller number of performers.
