About WCC

WCC is a non profit making organisation which relies mainly on ticket sales for its funding with some support from sponsors. It has no subscription paying members and is run by the organiser John Treadway and a band of volunteers.  The organiser is a member of the Ipswich Arts Association and is also a trustee of the Ralph Vaughan Williams Society and is its Concerts Resources Officer.

WCC has four aims. These are:

  • To provide a platform for young professional musicians of the highest calibre.   
  • To give young people from the town's schools an opportunity to hear and also participate in classical music making.
  • To promote St Mary's Church as an excellent centre for public concerts.
  • To include performances of English music.

In line wih the second of these objectives, WCC encourages young people to experience and enjoy classical music  by providing free tickets (max 2 per family) for attendance at any concert, providing that they are accompanied by an adult.
