Past Events

On 23 June and 7 July 2018 we joined with the Dorian Singers to present two joint concerts in Felixstowe and Stowmarket, performing Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo by Michael Flanders & Joseph Horovitz, and Songs of the Fleet by Charles Villiers Stanford.

On 18 March 2018 the Stowmarket Chorale was joined by children from Rougham, Great Finborough, and South Lee Schools, together with Alexander L'Estrange and his jazz quintet, to sing L'Estrange's Zimbe! with its songs of Africa, and a performance of John Rutter's Mass of the Children. The concert was performed to a packed and appreciative Apex in Bury St Edmunds with just four seats remaining in the back row.

On 17 June 2017 we performed Vivaldi's Gloria and Karl Jenkins' Stabat Mater with a small sinfonietta which was very well received.
