Music at the University of Kent
Welcome to all the concerts for the rest of the academic year!
All our choirs, orchestras and bands will be in action in the Spring term, with some very exciting concerts lined up. The University Chamber Choir 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, with a programme of Tchaikovsky and Puccini. On campus, the ever-popular Concert and Big Bands, and Musical Theatre Society will both be in full swing.
The Music Department greatly enjoys working with other departments on campus and has recently collaborated with the Schools of English, Arts, History and Special Collections and Archives. For the Spring term we will be joining forces with the School of Biosciences for a fascinating lunchtime concert and exhibition, taking cutting-edge biological research and placing it in the magnificent environment of the Colyer-Fergusson Hall and Gallery. It must be the first time an image of chromosomes has ever graced the cover of our Music Brochure!
And finally – looking ahead to some warm sunny weather, do watch out for all our Summer Music Week events from 4-10 June!
