Music of Our Time HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS
Music of Our Time is JAM’s annual ‘curtain raiser’. It is a special concert as we go back to our roots; that of commissioning, enabling and performing new music. In this concert, we revisit three commissions and surround them with six pieces from our annual Call for Music.
We celebrate the 70th anniversary of the UK’s finest chamber orchestra, London Mozart Players, with a fabulous programme including Tchaikovsky, Sibelius and Finzi, alongside Paul Mealor’s spectacular 2nd Symphony and a world premiere by Kent composer James Aburn.
Paul Mealor’s The Farthest Shore headlines a fantastic concert featuring choirs from Cambridge, Canterbury and Romney Marsh children, accompanied by brass and organ. Music by Mendelssohn, Parry, Barber, Copland and Stanford make up a programme also including a Festival Commission by Daniel Saleeb.
Come & Play has become an annual event in the festival, when we give musicians of any age or stage the opportunity to bring their instrument and some music, and perform accompanied by Festival Curator, Michael Bawtree. This is that it is not a formal concert, more an opportunity to explore music with a world-class accompanist. FREE EVENT – Please phone 0800 988 7984 to book your slot, as there is limited availability!
