Making Music with Trianon

Local music group Trianon’s choir was formed 50 years ago and one of the highlights of their 2014 programme is a concert at the Ipswich Corn Exchange on 26th April. 

The concert features Bach’s O Praise the Lord and Borodin’s Symphony No 2 in B Minor.  Borodin includes themes from his opera, Prince Igor, in this piece.  The orchestra will also perform Mascagni’s lovely Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana. 

Elgar’s The Music Makers gives its name to the concert and is a work for orchestra and choir.  Elgar based the music on a poem by Arthur O'Shaughnessy.  Ode was written in 1874 and Elgar set the entire poem to music.  It celebrates the dreaming artist and themes from The Enigma variations, Nimrod and Sea Pictures are referenced in the music.

The concert is on Saturday 26th April 2014 and starts at 7.30pm.  Tickets are available from just £9.50 (Concessions £5) from the Trianon ticket line 01473 780178 (no booking fee), Ipswich Tourist Information Office and Ipswich Regent online at or by telephone on 01473 433100 (booking fee applies).
