Music at the University of Kent
All our choirs, orchestras and bands will be in action in the Spring Term, with some very exciting concerts lined up. Our newly-formed Minerva Voices will be performing amidst the wonderful acoustics of Canterbury Cathedral’s Eastern Crypt, and the Chorus and Symphony Orchestra will give their annual concert in the Nave. The Cecilian Choir and Sinfonia head down the hill in March, and back on campus the ever-popular Concert and Big Bands and Musical Theatre Society will both be in full swing.
There is an American theme running through some of our other concerts. CantiaQuorum, our virtuosic ensemble-in-residence, will cross the ‘Pond’, with music by Wynton Marsalis and Gershwin, followed later in the term by some trad New Orleans jazz from The Native Oyster Band and a bonus family concert with a US flavour by the Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. And, there’s even some mid-term musical wizardry …!
And finally – looking ahead to some warm sunny weather, do watch out for all our Summer Music Week events from 5-11 June!
