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.
Acclaimed for their life-affirming virtuosity and irresistible charm, The King’s Singers are in global demand. Over the last 50 years, they have been one of the greatest singing groups worldwide. Their work – synonymous with the best in vocal performance – appeals to a vast international audience.
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 & Sing in this year’s festival with wonderful, local and hugely experienced singer and educator, Rebecca Lodge. Have a try at an opera chorus, sing a show-tune or two and have a crack at some choral music.
