Scorching success for Music in the Park!
Ipswich Music Day was a real hotspot for music of all kinds this year. Trianon Strings treated visitors to the cool Wolsey Art Gallery in Christchurch Mansion to a recital. Surrounded by paintings from local artists Constable and Gainsborough, we were back in the 18th Century with Mozart’s Divertimento in D. The group also gave a soulful performance of Bach’s Air on a G String and John Rutter’s O waly waly, under the leadership of their Principal Violinist, Steve Brown.
The imposing Bethesda Church was the place to be as the hot afternoon continued. Trianon Voices combined classical and light repertoire, with The Gospel Train, Britten’s Friday Afternoons, and some favourites from My Fair Lady, concluding with an explosive Don’t Rain on my Parade. Trianon’s accompanist, Roy Everett, who had been conducting the Ipswich Choral Society moments before, was at the piano. What a great way to spend an afternoon in Ipswich!
