Mozart's Requiem, 6th April 2019, 19:30 to 21:30 at Snape Maltings Concert Hall, Snape (20.7 miles)
Mozart's mysterious masterpiece and world premiere at Snape

Ipswich Choral Society with Music Director Robin Walker return to Snape following their hugely successful performance of Mendelssohn's Elijah in 2017. The concert on 6 April features a mostly Mozart programme including his famous Requiem and a world premiere of 'The Affirming Flame' by Tom Randle.

Shrouded in mystery, the commissioning of the unfinished Requiem written at the time of Mozart's death in 1791 has always fascinated the musical world. Mozart's Requiem is a choral masterpiece and hugely popular with performers and audiences alike. For their performance at Snape, Ipswich Choral Society is delighted that their President, the international conductor Cem Mansur, will be joining them as guest conductor.

Inspired by the Ipswich Remembers performance when he was invited to sing with Ipswich Choral Society last March, Grammy award winning tenor and composer Tom Randle is thrilled that his new oratorio 'The Affirming Flame' will be premiered at Snape on 6 April. The five part oratorio uses text from poets such as Siegfried Sassoon and Carl Sandburg, and 'The Parcel' from local poet Pam Job of the Suffolk Poetry Society.

Bounceability meet at 157 Colchester Road, Colchester Road, West Bergholt, Colchester (7.8 miles)
Bounceability is something we are born with. Think about a child learning to walk. No matter how many times they might stumble and fall, they get right back up again and try again until they get it right. The trouble is that as we grow up our view of the world is shaped and fashioned by our experiences, and sometimes we become fearful of trying again. We get stuck into negative patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking and sometimes just don't know how to change. Have you got stuck or just forgotten how to be happy? Have you given up trying? Maybe you could use some Bounceability.
So whether you feel as if you are in a rut but can't figure out how to get out of it; if you have made bad choices and are struggling with the consequences of your decisions; if you have a bad habit that you want to eliminate; if you want to lose weight or stop smoking; if your nerves are getting the better of you or if something outside your control has had an impact on your life, or whatever is stopping you from living the life of your dreams, you need some Bounceability.
