A symphony concert for Remembrance Sunday

Add to my Calendar 13-11-2016 16:00 13-11-2016 18:00 36 A Tribute to the Fallen - A Celebration of Freedom Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra will be playing a special programme of much-loved classics at Ipswich Corn Exchange on Remembrance Sunday. The concert, entitled “A Tribute to the Fallen – A Celebration of Freedom” has been organised with the help of the Royal British Legion and will be attended by the Mayor of Ipswich and leading figures from the County. Leslie Olive, conductor of the Suffolk Philharmonic, said “The concert pays tribute to the fallen and looks to celebrate our continued freedom which their sacrifice achieved.” Music includes two short pieces often associated with acts of remembrance – Barber’s “Adagio for Strings”, voted “the saddest piece of classical music” by BBC Radio 4 listeners, and the concert opens with “Fanfare For The Common Man” by Aaron Copland. Violinist Benjamin Baker makes a welcome return to play with the Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra the ever popular Violin Concerto by Max Bruch. Ben’s performance is guaranteed to ‘wow’ the audience, as it did last year when he played with the Suffolk Philharmonic at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds. After the interval, the Suffolk Philharmonic will play the famous “New World” Symphony by Dvorak, a piece full of excitement and hope for a bright future – and familiar to many listeners nationwide for a famous Hovis television advert. There will be a retiring collection in aid of the Royal British Legion. Corn Exchange, Ipswich DD/MM/YYYY
