The latest exciting news in the local music scene is that Ipswich Symphony Orchestra is the new name of the town’s Orchestral Society.
Orchestra chairman Pat Grimwade says, “We’ve decided that it’s time to update our name. IOS has been giving concerts in the town for 113 years but we feel that the new name is better suited to the size and quality of the orchestra, and the prominence of our county town.
We’re a large successful orchestra and we’re well respected in the musical world. Our inspirational conductor, Adam Gatehouse, is hugely experienced and we shall be continuing a long tradition of bringing world class soloists to perform at the Corn Exchange.”
Look out for news of Ipswich Symphony Orchestra’s special launch concerts in 2016, including a family concert, Family Fiesta! on Sunday 28th February and a Festival Concert on 25th June 2016.
