Ipswich Choral Society kicks off its 2017-18 season with a performance of Britten’s Ceremony of Carols this weekend.

The curtain raiser concert will be held from 7.30pm on Saturday at Ipswich School’s great school in Ivry Street.

The programme of performances include Ave Maria, Welsh folk tune David of the White Rock and Winter by Stevie Wishart.

Joining Ipswich Choral Society for the event will be renowned harpist Helen Sharp, who has performed with leading symphony and chamber orchestras in the UK, as well as pianist William Baldry, assistant director of music at St Mary-le-Tower.

A spokeswoman for the society said the event will have a “delightful programme of music for a winter evening”.
