In a completely spontaneous, unpremeditated and not-at-all contrived moment earlier, lots of students were found to have completely independently flocked to the Summer Music Week banner in order to share their excitement at all the events, which kick off next weekend. Fancy that…
You too can share in their excitement; see all that’s coming up between Sunday 7 – Saturday 13 June online here. Who knows, next time we might find YOU spontaneously mobbing the banner…(tweet @UKCSummerMusic if you do…).
Our annual Summer Music Week festival to celebrate the end of another musical year at the University is now published online, with all the details of what’s coming up.
Running from Sunday 7 to Saturday 13 June, the week kicks off with a seaside visit to the Deal Bandstand with the Big Band; some of the singing Music Scholars will present a programme of Operatic Heroines in Love on Monday 8; the Lunchtime Concert on Tuesday 9 from some of this year’s Music Scholars, followed by the Music Awards ceremony; Wednesday sees the Concert and Big Bands coming together in the evening; Thursday features an informal lunchtime performance from the String Sinfonia; on Friday the Music Theatre Society performs on the foyer-stage at lunchtime, whilst in the evening we present our choral commission from composer Matthew King, poet Patricia Debney with projected photos by Phil Ward, performed by the Chamber and Cecilian Choirs; and the week comes to a festive conclusion with the Chorus, Orchestra and Chamber Choir on the Saturday afternoon, followed by cream teas on the lawn and many fond farewells.
Relive the memories of last year’s festival on our Pinterest board here: full details of all the events are published online here, or you can collect a brochure for the week’s events from Colyer-Fergusson soon.

With Summer Music Week finally over – and what a week it was! – you can re-live some of the moments over on our Pinterest board. From the opening burst from the Big Band in the sunshine on the Deal Bandstand to the final, stirring strains of Elgar on the second Sunday, it was a fantastic week of music-making, in which many of the University’s students, staff and members of the local community came together to celebrate music at Kent.
Visit the pinboard here: more photos will follow later in the week as well.
Prepare to bathe in the flickering dance of the silver screen’s musical magic, as the Music Theatre Society presents its final showcase of the year on Monday 9 June.
A Night at the Movies will be bursting with songs from shows including Legally Blonde, Shrek, Sister Act, The Producers and others, and promises to be a all-singing-and-dancing finale to the Music Theatre Society’s epic year.
(Don’t forget you can also catch them on the Colyer-Fergusson Foyer stage later in the week, when they will present ‘Songs from the Shows’ at 1pm on Friday 13 June as part of Summer Music Week (more here).
Tickets for A Night At The Movies are £8/ concessions £6, available from the Gulbenkian Theatre Box Office here. Check out the Society’s event page on Facebook here. Prepare for movie magic…
