Sudbury Symphony Orchestra has been making music for over 20 years and goes from strength to strength. Based in the market town of Sudbury in Suffolk we are an enthusiastic amateur orchestra performing music ranging from Haydn and Mozart to Shostakovich and Copland. We have players from Sudbury itself, the nearby villages, Colchester, Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich and even Newmarket.
For string players, we believe that if you are at least Grade 5 standard then you will find playing in the orchestra challenging but very enjoyable. If you are not quite at Grade 5 standard but are keen to take your playing up a level, then we can help you get the skills and experience you need to really enjoy playing in the orchestra. For wind players we normally ask for a minimum of Grade 6 and some orchestral experience.
Community and Arts Venue
St Peter's is a Community and Arts venue, housed within a former Anglican church.
On 29th May 1976 the building was vested to the Churches Conservation Trust.
In the same year the Friends of St Peter’s, Sudbury was formed with the aim of keeping the building open, in good order and enabling its use for the benefit of the community.
The Friends of St Peter’s is registered as a Charity, No. 271090.
We believe that St Peter’s is starting to look a little tired and we are seeking to ensure that it remains, for the future, at the heart of our town. This will involve many repairs to the fabric of the building, including major work on the roof and clerestory; but it will also affect some changes within the building with plans that include the installation of a mezzanine gallery and toilets, among other things. These exciting plans are at an early stage at present and we are working hard with the Churches Conservation Trust regeneration team to breathe new life into St Peter’s.
Whilst every effort goes into ensuring this gig listing is accurate and up to date, always check with the venue before you travel.
