New Year’s Musical Revels – 6th January 2024, 7.30pm at Ipswich Corn Exchange

Come and celebrate the New Year with Trianon symphony orchestra and choir conducted by Chris Green OBE.

Trianon has long prided itself in offering a light-hearted programme to welcome in the New Year. It rarely is based upon the more traditional Viennese-style of music to be heard on New Year’s Day, although this year is an exception with a group of pieces by the Strauss family and Franz Lehar. For the rest of the programme you can be sure there is no shortage of hummable or even audience-singable tunes.
