One year since the New Music School was opened

11th April 2017 By Ipswich School in Ipswich School Music

It hardly seems possible that it was just over a year ago that we officially opened our fabulous New Music School.  The event marked the 450th anniversary of the re-affirmation of the School’s Royal Charter by Elizabeth I in 1566 and was attended by many people who have been involved in school music making over the years.

The New Music School was opened by Julian Lloyd Webber, who commented that he was passionate about investment in music education.

Since then, the facility has enabled a really high standard of music making which was very evident in the recent Young Musician of the Year Competition.

The place is buzzing throughout every school day with all the practice rooms in use by students having fun performing, composing and practising.
