The University of Kent’s Lunchtime Concert series resumes this autumn after a year’s hiatus due to Covid, offering an exciting and eclectic range of musical performances that Canterbury law firm Furley Page is pleased to sponsor once again. 

The autumn concert programme kicks off on Wednesday 20 October with a performance by sitarist and composer, Jonathan Mayer and tabla-player Denis Kucherov, who will bring a mesmerising sequence of Indian ragas to the concert-hall. 

On Wednesday 3 November, players from Glyndebourne Tour Orchestra bring an informal programme of instrumental music, including Stravinsky’s Three Pieces for String Quartet, followed by a workshop with Glyndebourne musicians, which members of the public are welcome to attend. Meanwhile, on Wednesday 20 November Asako Morikawa will perform an evocative programme of works for solo viol. 

The Autumn lunchtime concert series concludes on Wednesday 4 December with a visit from the Deptford Rivieras jazz trio, featuring saxophonist Phil Veacock, who bring their own unique no-holds barred interpretation of 1960s soul, jazz and funk. 

Jeremy Licence, Managing Partner at Furley Page, said: “Furley Page is delighted to support The University of Kent by once again sponsoring this year’s concert programme. The lunchtime concert series never fails to delight audiences with a wonderful repertoire of music and this year’s line-up offers yet another exciting and eclectic mix of performances.” 

Dan Harding, Head of Music Performance at the University of Kent, said: “We’re delighted that Furley Page continues to support our concert series and it’s a pleasure to resume our regular series of performances to share with the local community once more – particularly after the difficulties that both performers and audiences have faced over the past year.” 

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
