In case anyone would like to come along, the Ipswich and Norwich Co op Band and the Whitburn band will be appearing in a joint concert at the United Reformed Church, Stowmarket, 19:30 on Saturday evening, 27th May! The Ipswich Band will be playing in the 1st half, Whitburn in the 2nd and then we will join forces for the finale. We are really pleased and honoured to be hosting this concert which has come about following a close association developing between Whitburn's conductor, Andrew Duncan and the Ipswich & Norwich Co op Band. Andrew is a friend of our MD, Robin Norman, has recently composed a commission for us entitled "A Suffolk Prelude" (and what a brilliant piece it is) and also played for us at the Regional Contest in March! It promises to be an excellent evening with a really good selection of music, including Whitburn giving a run to Paganini Variations before they compete at Cambridge on Sunday. Tickets are £5 and will be available on the door. More details from me if required.
