Contributed by editor on Feb 07, 2017 - 10:15 AM

Bohemian Rhapsody continues the spring series of lunchtime concerts on Wednesday February 8 in the Colyer-Fergusson Hall of the University of Kent in Canterbury.

 

 

 

Enjoy a trip around Bohemia as CantiaQuorum explores music written long before Queen ever contemplated a visit. From the Moravian baroque to Monti’s virtuosic Czardas, the programme also brings Brahms and Janácek along for the ride. Watch out for two more concerts from this exciting chamber ensemble in May.

The final concert, Tango!, on Wednesday March 29 presents Lydia Cheng (violin), Faith Chan (cello) and Daniel Harding (piano) exploring this sensuous South American ballroom dance.

The set includes Piazzolla’s colourful Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, featuring two university music scholars and the Deputy Director of Music. The trio promises a simmering programme bursting with passion and swirling drama so if you know how to tango, bring your dancing shoes!

The lunchtime concerts, sponsored by Furley Page Solicitors, start at 1.10pm and admission is free, with a suggested donation of £3. For more information, visit www.kent.ac.uk/music
