Outstanding Musicians to take centre stage during autumn concert programme

The house jazz band from London’s famed 606 Club will open a new series of lunchtime concerts this autumn at the University of Kent in Canterbury, sponsored once again by Furley Page Solicitors.

RMG Collective features a quintet of leading British musicians with remarkable pedigrees, and will kick off the new series with some straight-ahead swing on Wednesday, October 11. A whole host of genres will be included on the setlist, from mid-60s Hubbard and Hancock, through to Brazilian music of the 1980s.

Four principal players from the Philharmonia Orchestra – Sarah Oates, Fabrizio Falasca (violins), Yukiko Ogura (viola) and Timothy Walden (cello) – will perform Schubert’s String Quartet No 14 in D Minor, known as Death and the Maiden, on Wednesday, November 8. The quartet will then join the rest of the orchestra for a performance of Holst’s The Planets and Bruch’s Violin Concerto at the Marlowe Theatre that evening.

The Society of the Strange and Ancient Instruments will present traditional tunes, dances, songs and carols in a celebration of angels, the maverick and fallen, as well as the divine and perfect, on Wednesday, December 6. The society will play some of the instruments which appear in descriptions and depictions of angels through the ages, as well as other strange and ethereal-sounding instruments.

Furley Page Senior Partner Peter Hawkes said: “The autumn concert programme offers a superb line-up of high-quality musicians. Furley Page is delighted to be associated with a programme which offers something that can be enjoyed by all.”

The lunchtime concerts will take place in the Colyer-Fergusson Hall at 1.10pm and admission is free, with a suggested donation of £3. For more information, visit www.kent.ac.uk/music
