Exciting young percussion group Kopanya launches a new season of lunchtime concerts this autumn in the Colyer-Fergusson Hall of the University of Kent in Canterbury, sponsored once more by Furley Page Solicitors.

Sam Wilson, Elsa Bradley, Craig Apps and George English have a combined CV that spans hip-hop, classical, folk, theatre, improv, jazz and the avant-garde. All of these styles will be brought together on Wednesday October 12 in a programme showcasing a century of percussion music.

On Wednesday November 9, the Kentish Piano Trio will be performing one of Beethoven’s great chamber masterpieces, Trio, Opus 70, No 1 in D major – known as The Ghost because of its hauntingly eerie second movement.

Musicians Kathy Shave (violin), Julia Vohralik (cello) and Helen Crayford (piano) have recently teamed up to champion the piano trio repertoire. Kathy and Julia have been members of the acclaimed Britten Sinfonia for many years while Helen freelances with the Philharmonia Orchestra, among others.

The season culminates on Wednesday December 7 with a performance by one of the most prominent sitar players and Indian music educators in the UK.

Ustad Dharambir Singh has worked extensively with the Euro Asian Fusion group Shiva Nova and his collaboration with the eminent saxophonist Martin Speake resulted in the acclaimed CD Journey.

His reputation as an educator is unparalleled and in 2011 he was awarded an MBE for his services to community engagement and music. For this concert he will be joined by tabla virtuoso Pt Sanju Sahai.

Furley Page Senior Partner Peter Hawkes said: “This season’s concerts promise a diverse mix of wonderful entertainment from some outstanding musicians. We’re proud to once again support a programme which can be enjoyed by the whole community.”

The lunchtime concerts start at 1.10pm and admission is free, with a suggested donation of £3. For more information, visit
