Looking for inspiration for how to spoil your loved ones this Valentine’s Day?
Look no further than Tulmur Place in Ipswich’s Nicholas Street Precinct where two free 45 minute concerts will be performed by Ipswich City Orchestra’s Chamber Ensemble on 14 February.
Ten musicians – eight strings, one piano, and one percussion – under the baton of esteemed maestro Patrick Burns, will be joined by two talented vocalists to perform a selection of popular music in a classical setting.
Music will include pieces from the Broadway shows Spamalot and Les Miserables, works by film composers Enio Morricone and Nino Rota as well as songs by ABBA and DJ Nex.
The two performances will be held at 5.30pm and 7.15pm.
The first 500 concert goers will receive a long-stem rose and a heart-shaped chocolate.
Tickets are not required but a COVID safe check-in system will be in place.
Four Hearts Brewing Company will have a pop-up stall to sell cold drinks and coffee.
No food will be available, but attendees can bring their own. No glass or BYO alcohol allowed.
The Tulmur Place water play zone will be on for most of the evening to entertain the children, but it will be turned off during the performances so attendees can hear the music.
The Valentine’s Day concerts are part of Ipswich City Council’s ongoing efforts to activate the new Tulmur Place for the benefit of the community.
There is lots more to come, including the return of the Future Flavours Food Truck and Markets.
