Canterbury - A Portrait in Music
World-famous clarinettist, Tony Coe, joins with the Canterbury Orchestra and Thanet-based Cantate Chamber Choir to present a musical portrait of Canterbury in this year's Festival. More details in the press release.
The concert featured the work of four local Kent composers:
- Sinfonietta by Canterbury composer Alan Ridout: a piece specially written for the Canterbury Orchestra.
- the Canterbury Psalms by the internationally-renowned Paul Patterson, one time Composer-in-Residence at The King's School.
- Murder in the Cathedral by Thanet based composer John Myhill and jazz clarinettist Tony Coe.
- Stour Reflections (premier) by Canterbury composer Michael Lewis based on a poem about The Stour.
'This concert represents a remarkable innovation for our Orchestra and anyone who thinks that modern music does not have memorable tunes and evocative and atmospheric qualities is in for a surprise.'

Canterbury Orchestra’s Winter Concert presents three of the mainstays of the orchestral repertoire that are firmly lodged in the hearts and minds of concertgoers everywhere, opening with Mozart’s sparkling orchestration of themes from his opera, followed by Dvorak’s soulful and moving work for cello and orchestra and concluding with Beethoven’s turbulent fifth symphony.
