A new series of six lectures begins at Ipswich Institute on Friday exploring the relationship between music and the region it was created in – including a look at some of East Anglia’s lesser-known artists.

The series, entitled A Musical Sense of Place, will be held at Ipswich Institute from Friday, April 28, ending on Friday June 9 from 10.30am-12.30pm.

Emeritus professor Chris Green, who is running the series of lectures, said the lectures will “enable people to explore the connections between music and the landscape not only in this region, but in other parts of the country, with the invitation to the group to decide where they want to go.”

No prior musical knowledge is needed, with composers being discussed including Elgar, Holst and Vaughan Williams.

The sessions will use maps, and even satellite navigation devices to chart the journey.
