The band was formed in 1967 as the Suffolk Military Band. This originated from an Ipswich adult education course with a core of members from the Ipswich Town Brass Band and the Suffolk and Cambridgeshire Territorial Regimental Band. The band has since developed into a versatile ensemble of musicians from Ipswich and the surrounding area.
The band’s repertoire is wide ranging and recent concerts have included works by Verdi, Strauss, Sousa and Rogers and Hammerstein.
The concert this evening will feature many of the recent numbers performed by the band as well as some new favourites
