Tickets are available for a night of live orchestral music featuring the premiere of three folksongs.

Ipswich-based Trianon Music Group, a non-professional symphony orchestra, is visiting Bury St Edmunds on Saturday, February 23, for the first of three concerts in local communities during 2019, the group’s Diamond Jubilee year.

Nearly 40 of the group’s 180 members will perform at All Saints Church in Park Road at 7.30pm in a concert in aid of St Leonard’s Church, Horringer.

The concert will feature singers and string players in a programme packed with popular works including Bach’s Air in G, Gustav Holst’s St Paul’s Suite as well as a medley from Carousel.

One unique feature of the programme is the premiere of three folksongs collected by the composer George Butterworth on a visit to Ipswich in 1912.

The folksongs do not appear ever to have been published, but were logged on a digital map published by the English Folksong and Dance Society.

Trianon member Mim Macmahon has arranged them for four-part choir and they get their first outing in Bury St Edmunds.
