On Thursday 6th October the British Army Band Colchester entertained 250 children from various local primary schools in the morning before giving an outdoor concert for staff and pupils during the lunch break.
In the afternoon our musicians joined the rehearsals ready for an outstanding evening concert when they participated in the second half. The concert was sponsored by the Old Ipswichian Club and for the twelfth consecutive year the principal sponsor of the Festival of Music was OI Karl Daniels.
On Friday the 7th October there was a treat for jazz fans when Polly Gibbons and James Pearson took centre stage. Saturday evening saw the sell out audience on their feet dancing to the London Community Gospel Choir who gave an uplifting, unforgettable performance. The tempo changed on Sunday as a sung Evensong was led by the School Chapel Choir. The Festival of Music 2022 ended on Monday the 10th October with the Alkyona Quartet who were joined by Ipswich School's Chamber Orchestra.
The Festival gave our students a fantastic opportunity to learn from and play with, professional musicians as well as watch some inspiring live performances.
