Next Concert

Saturday May 17th 2014 at 7.30 pm

Colyer-Fergusson Hall, University of Kent

The Spring Concert celebrates the Orchestra's 60th Anniversary and the choice of music acknowledges the Centenary of World War I, drawing on British music of the period and featuring the hugely popular work by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins based on the renaissance tune The Armed Man.  The piece is subtitled A Mass for Peace and is a bold denunciation of war incorporating extracts from the Ordinary of the Mass and words from other religious and historical sources, including the Islamic call to prayer, the Bible (e.g. the Psalms and Revelation), and the Mahabharata. Writers whose words appear in the work include Rudyard Kipling, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Sankichi Toge, who survived the Hiroshima bombing. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Sittingbourne Orpheus to perform this fine work.  
Also on the programme will be Holst's stirring Mars, The Bringer of War and gentler offerings by Butterworth, Elgar and Vaughan Williams. The concert will take place on May 17th at the Colyer-Fergusson Hall, the University of Kent's wonderful music venue. Tickets are £12 for adults and £5 for students and children of school age.  They will be available on the door and from the Gulbenkian Box Office (01227 769075 or boxoffice@kent.ac.uk)
