Ensembles

The members of the bands are very musically active, and have also formed ensembles which play out in public at various events, from fêtes and weddings to churches and army officer mess nights.

Currently there is a Wind Ensemble and a Brass Ensemble within the band, and an up-and-coming Saxophone Ensemble.

Booking the ensembles

The Ipswich Hospital Band and St Peter’s Band mainly accepts bookings for concerts in aid of health-related charities and other similar worthy causes. The ensembles will be carrying out various events in December for example at retirement homes and private functions.

A nominal fee is charged to help cover expenses. Brass and Wind ensembles of approximately six to twelve players can also be provided to perform fanfares for ceremonial occasions, music for church services, or social events. Bookings for smaller events such as weddings and dinners are also accepted.
