Music in March 2018


Music in March 2018

On Saturday 24th March at 7.30pm, the Kent College Senior Orchestra and Choirs will perform in the school’s annual Music in March concert.

Handel’s oratorio, Messiah is probably his most famous work, and features strongly in Kent College Music Department’s next concert. This performance has a Mozart flavour as some of the famous chorus’ are being performed in Mozart’s orchestration. The concert opens with Mozart’s Don Giovanni Overture.

Director of Music, Mr Mike Kent-Davies commented: “Handel’s famous Messiah is indeed performed very frequently; some would say too much so. I, however would counter that by advocating Messiah as one of the crowning achievements of humanity, music and the baroque.

Every movement is a perfect piece of music, conveying its intended emotions with utter clarity. It is a work of art that performers and audience alike never tire of; it was composed to equally challenge and satisfy both. We have all really enjoyed tackling its breath-taking joy, pathos and beauty and look forward to sharing this with our audience and guests from Wiesbaden”

Music in March combines the talents of Kent College pupils, their families, staff and friends who have been invited to participate in a piece. The girls from Kent College will be joined by singers from the choirs of Mädchenchor Wiesbaden e.V.“ from Tunbridge Wells’ Twin Town.

Nicole Piontex, from Wiesbaden’s choir commented “The Mädchenchor Wiesbaden e.V.“ choirs offer musically interested, talented girls, teens and women lasting support of their talents. In their 8 years of existence the choirs have gained a solid place in the cultural life of Wiesbaden. Musical journeys to befriended choirs are an important part in the annual program.

It's been a lot of work organising our trip to Kent and rehearsing all songs in addition to our normal rehearsals - but we are looking forward to getting to know our twin city Tunbridge Wells and the musicians from the Kent College.”

Music plays an important part in the life of Kent College, thriving as an academic subject and a major co-curricular activity. Kent College students regularly continue their studies beyond school, with a number of girls pursuing music at University.
