Music at the University of Kent



It is a great pleasure to welcome you to our music-making this Autumn.

Colyer-Fergusson HallThe University Chorus and Symphony Orchestra will be giving a concert called ‘Old and New’, performing works by Handel and Vivaldi alongside 20th and 21st century realisations of music of the past. The Musical Theatre Society will present their ever-popular showcase and the Big Band’s annual sell-out Christmas Swing-Along will see out the term with suitably seasonal revelry! There will be the usual eclectic musical mix for our lunchtime concert series, ranging from saxophones, chamber music to a celebration of Hitchcock’s classic film, Vertigo.

In November we are delighted to present Hansel & Gretel, fresh from its premiere at the Cheltenham Festival. With words by Simon Armitage and music by Matthew Kaner, together with evocative puppetry and animation, this will be a very special event in the Colyer-Fergusson Hall.

You can find out more information about all these events on both our 'What's On' page and Gulbenkian Box Office website, and in the Music brochure.
