Singing at The URC in Stowmarket

Two concerts with very different styles of music.


On 29th November, Stellar Acapella Ladies Chorus and The VIPs, men's barbershop Chorus, both Ipswich based groups provide an evening of close harmony singing of popular song and Barbershop, some modern and some much older.

The event is organised by Gipping Rotary Club and proceeds go in aid of The British Heart Foundation.

On the following evening, 30th November, The Stowmarket Chorale provides an evening of highlights from J.S.Bach's Christmas Oratorio.

Since its foundation in 1901, this choir has endeavoured to provide a great standard of singing for the people of Stowmarket and the surrounding areas.

His first performance with the choir was in November 2018 since when he has directed the Choir in three more public performances.
