Held at the Concert Hall at Snape Maltings, the concert saw more than 200 pupils from both the preparatory school and senior school perform on the world-famous stage.

The concert was an opportunity for many of the school's music ensembles to play together, including a massed orchestra on stage - with the concert orchestra and symphony orchestra joining together to play Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March No 4.

Ipswich School's director of music, Beverley Steensma, said: "The night was a resounding success and was enjoyed by the performers and audience alike.

"This was such a special opportunity for our pupils, to perform on the world class stage of Snape Maltings, and to join together to make music and have fun."
