CLASSICAL music may be the order of night at a concert in Ipswich next month but the audience are in for an extra treat with the addition of some first class a cappella to the bill.

The Magnets have been booked to perform at Aero-Proms, which is being staged in Christchurch Park on July 27.

The six-piece band, who appeared on BBC1's Star For A Night and have gone on to enjoy musical success, produce their sound without a single instrument and are therefore at the other extreme to the orchestra of strings, brass and percussion providing the main performance of the night.

The Magnets, are no strangers to Ipswich. Steve Trowell is a former Ipswich School pupil and has performed in his home town with his band mates on many occasions, including gigs at the New Wolsey and Portman Road Football Ground.

The show will be brought to a close with a synchronised firework display to accompany the rousing finale but one of the highlights of the evening will take place during the classical concert's interval.

The Red Devils, the parachute regiment free fall team, will descend from 10,000 feet above Ipswich giving an impressive display of canopy formation flying and free fall aerobatics. It promises to be a spectacular sight guaranteed to get everyone looking skywards.
