'This unique festival, based in Suffolk, supports a multitude of musical genres from jazz to blues, rock to pop, plus a popular choral night. We’re delighted to welcome internationally known bands and musicians to our stage, but we’re also proud supporters of emerging acts and local talent. Bures Music Festival even runs its own young musicians’ competition – the ever popular B-Fest – open to musicians between 9 and 19 years old.' Held Early July.

 

Jazz at the Fleece is an association of people interested in jazz. They volunteer their time, and draw no funds from the club. The club is non-profit (you better believe it), and receives no subsidies from any person or organization. In other words, the people who come to listen to some of the best jazz available in the country, pay for the musicians and the running costs. We do try to keep the latter to a minimum ... We are delighted to be at this lovely venue. The quality of sound in the room is excellent. The facilities seem boundless, with golf, other sports, bar and lounge food as well as fine dining, spa and health facilities, a great hotel, and every Friday night, the best in modern jazz.‘

 

‘Normally held on the first Friday of the month – from September to July ... We feature folk music in the broadest sense of the word. In addition to “traditional” and “contemporary” folk music, you can expect to hear hints of pop, country, jazz or even classical music.’

 

'Do you play the ukulele? Are you a beginner, an intermediate player or an expert? Would you like to meet up with other uke players and play together, chat, share ideas and maybe put on a gig or two? ... The ukulele, the first of which was made in 1879, is a member of the lute family of instruments and is derived from a stringed instrument that first appeared in Portugal in 139BC. The ukulele is even more popular than it ever was ... There are approx 250 ukulele groups on the UK ... The ukulele is an ego-free zone.'

 

‘We are a 100-strong mixed choir with roots that go back over 120 years. We enjoy singing mainly from the established choral repertoire when we perform with the Colchester Symphony Orchestra and professional soloists. We have two main concerts each year ... We also perform a mix of lighter music at Christmas and two summer concerts ... Hadleigh Choral Society has a popular Friends' section of local music lovers who support us with subscriptions.’

 

Formed 2012: 'The aim of the choir is to give public performances of light and popular music to the highest standard possible. Performances are given to raise funds for charities and local organisations ... We welcome anyone who isn't confident about singing but would like to give it a go. There are no auditions nor do you need to read music (but it helps if you can). Do, however, expect to work hard if you want to reach a performance standard in singing and following a music score'.

 

‘First started out as the Hedingham Choral Society in 1984. In 1995 our name changed to the Hedingham Singers as it was more appropriate to the sort of music we perform ... Our repertoire includes songs from the shows, light classical music, popular songs, sacred pieces and jazzy numbers ... Anyone can join ... Whatever your music ability, you are welcome ... There is no formal audition.’

 

'The Lavenham Sinfonia gives vibrant, energetic concerts, with brilliant soloists, of great masterworks from our musical heritage ... Coming to a Lavenham Sinfonia concert is a richer experience than listening to music at home: all of your senses are engaged, and the enjoyment of the musicians is palpable. It is made more memorable by being in one of the truly great East Anglian churches ... The Sinfonia receives no grants in aid and is maintained entirely by local business and the support of our Friends, Patrons, and Lavenham Sinfonia Partners.'

 

'We are a very friendly group of about 60 members of varying abilities and ages who share a love of singing. We give four concerts a year, frequently with soloists and an orchestra usually held in St Peters, Sudbury. As well as large choral works, our programmes feature a variety of music, from Bach to the Beatles, and include folk music, madrigals and carols.'

 

'Formed in 1993 ... aims to enable amateur instrumentalists to play challenging music whilst having fun. The orchestra plays a range of classical and light music in three or four concerts each year ... As well as regular concerts, the orchestra meets for day or weekend events a couple of times a year to work on repertoire other than the concert programmes ... Anyone is welcome to join; there are no auditions but usually a trial period to make sure everyone is happy, and a minimum of grade 5 is probably needed to keep up. We are always interested in hearing from new players ...'

 

'Holy Trinity is a popular venue to hold events, ranging from concerts, art exhibitions, to textile exhibitions. Many visiting artistes comment on the beautiful and inspiring setting and musicians often comment on the "generous" acoustics ... Melford Music is a charity which hosts lunchtime recitals through the summer months starting at 1.10pm every Wednesday. Admission is free.'
