Trebuchet strikes a chord with SPO

We’re pleased to have composed a partnership with Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra. As part of our involvement, we’ll be advising and supporting SPO in securing press coverage ahead of a Remembrance Day concert in Ipswich on 13 November and beyond.

Taking place at Ipswich Corn Exchange from 4pm, the Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra will be playing a special programme of much-loved classics. It’ll include recognisable pieces of music such as Dvorak: New World Symphony, also known as the tune from the Hovis TV advertisement, and Rossini: William Tell Overture – or the ‘Lone Ranger’ theme tune.

Leslie Olive, conductor of the Suffolk Philharmonic, said: “The concert pays tribute to the fallen and celebrates our continued freedom due to their sacrifice. With the recent centenaries of the Battles of the Somme and Jutland, the event is particularly poignant.

“The programme will appeal to a wide range of people – even those who would not normally go to a classical concert – while maintaining our usual superb quality. We encourage everyone to join us in for an evening of beautiful music.”

Other music includes two short pieces often associated with acts of remembrance – Barber’s Adagio for Strings, voted “the saddest piece of classical music” by BBC Radio 4 listeners, and the concert opens with ‘Fanfare For The Common Man’ by Aaron Copland.

Tickets are available from the Corn Exchange at:, or call the box office on 01473 433100.
