Fundraising

 

If you shop at Amazon, open smile.amazon.co.uk instead and choose Ipswich Symphony Orchestra as your charity.  AmazonSmile features the same products at the same prices as the standard Amazon site but, when you shop with AmazonSmile, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the cost of eligible products to the orchestra.  Thank you!

Peter Lister
6 February 2022

We were sad to learn that Peter passed away on Sunday 6th February 2022.

Peter played double bass with us for many years and was much loved member of the bass section.  

He also enjoyed folk music, and was a trained ceramicist and a talented woodworker.  

 

 

Geoff Webb      
5 February 1952 ~ 21 March 2021


Our deepest sympathy to Sally and Charlotte following the peaceful death of Geoff on 21 March 2021.

As well as being a peripatetic brass teacher with Suffolk County Council, Geoff has surely played with every local orchestra as well as many wind bands and brass ensembles.

Live music in Suffolk will not be the same without him.

And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile'

We were so very saddended by the sudden death of Graham in November 2020, and we send our sincere condolences to Christine and his family. 

Graham was a stalwart and much loved member of the orchestra, and our lead 'cellist and Chairman for many years. 

He will be missed greatly by all who were fortunate enough to have known him.
