Programme Note

Delighted that the dazzling Jennifer Pike is making her third appearance with the Ipswich Orchestral Society, performing Rózsa’s  Variations on a Hungarian Peasant Song Op 4 and  Saint-Saëns’  Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso as part of our Summer 2015 concert.

The Ipswich Orchestral Society has performed concerts in Ipswich since 1902 and is one of the oldest amateur orchestras in the UK.  During more than a century of high quality music making, the Orchestra has built up an enviable reputation for performing adventurous and challenging programmes.

Previous conductors include Sir Colin Davis and Rumon Gamba. Our present conductor, Adam Gatehouse, has worked with the Orchestra since 2000, during which time the repertoire has been expanded and developed to encompass some of the greatest works of the symphonic repertoire - including symphonies by Mahler, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov, as well as music by Beethoven, Strauss, Debussy and Leonard Bernstein.
