Spring schedule announced for University of Kent’s Lunchtime Concert series

16th January 2020

The University of Kent’s Lunchtime Concert series recommences on 22 January 2020, offering an exciting range of musical performances that are once again sponsored by Canterbury law firm Furley Page.

The Spring concert programme kicks off on Wednesday 22 January with a performance by award-winning trio The Trials of Cato. Dubbed “The Sex Pistols of folk”, this trio of mandolin, guitar, bouzouki and vocals has gone from busking out of the back of their transit van to winning Best Album at the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

The Concert series continues on Wednesday 26 February, when CantiaQuorum will delight with its ‘Kraft-werks’ Teutonic tour, featuring gems from German geniuses including Bach, Brahms and Henze.

On Wednesday 18 March, the University hosts Last night on Rue Chappe, a beguiling story of a day and a night on the streets of Paris told in music and painting, with chamber music by Debussy, Mozart and Shostakovich accompanied by projected images created by Canterbury-based artist, Adam de Ville.

Finally, on Wednesday 25 March student string players from the University’s Music Department will showcase their talents in the String Sinfonia, featuring some of the most celebrated string repertoire, including Boyce’s Symphony No 4, Tchaikovsky’s Andante Cantabile, and Mendelssohn’s String Symphony No 13.

Peter Hawkes, Senior Partner at Furley Page, said: “This year’s spring concert programme contains a real variety of exciting genres, performed by highly talented musicians. Furley Page is delighted to continue its long-standing support for a music programme which offers something for everyone.”

The lunchtime concerts will take place in the Colyer-Fergusson Hall at 1.10pm and admission is free, with a suggested donation of £3. To find out more and book visit University of Kent, Music, https://www.kent.ac.uk/music/whatson.html
