Ipswich Choral Society with Music Director Robin Walker return to Snape following their hugely successful performance of Mendelssohn’s ‘Elijah’ in 2017. The concert on 6 April features a mostly Mozart programme including his famous ‘Requiem’ and Ipswich Choral Society President, international conductor Cem Mansur, will be joining them as guest conductor.
The concert includes the world première of ‘The Affirming Flame’ by Grammy award winning tenor and composer Tom Randle. Inspired by ‘Ipswich Remembers’ when singing with ICS last March, Tom is thrilled that his new piece will be premièred at Snape. The five part oratorio for soprano and baritone soloists with choir features war poems and ‘The Parcel’ by Suffolk Poetry Society.
