The 74th Season of Faversham Music Club brings an exciting series of events to the Assembly Rooms continuing our First Sunday afternoon series and our Thursday Evening concerts. We have a rich array of talent performing on a wide variety of instruments and this season there will be another spectacular event for Faversham Voices as well as a Family Concert and other member events.

Concerts showcase music from across the centuries with a few new works by living composers and a world première which keeps the FMC very much in the 21st Century. The season begins with two renowned UK chamber musicians Robin Michael (cello) and Daniel Tong (piano) playing an all-Beethoven programme. Wind instruments feature heavily with appearances by Alexei Watkins (Horn), Anna Kondrashina (Flute), Katherine Bryer (Oboe) and the Kaleidoscope Saxophone Quartet (saxophones) alongside wind trios and quintets with piano.
Of course, we feature the Blüthner piano throughout the season but we have two wonderful solo pianists: Eva Dorosowska brings a festive programme for December and Joanna Krause ends the season with a recital of Bach. Returning by popular demand is the Swiss cellist Timothée Botbol accompanied by Dinara Klinton who pays a third visit – one not to be missed.And don’t forget our renowned home-baked cakes after the Sunday concerts
Faversham Voices will undertake a large project which will bring together many of the singing groups from Faversham and beyond in a spectacular son et lumière event celebrating the Waterways, Marshes and Coastline of Kent. There’s also a Family Cushion Concert with a ‘Prom cushioned area’ for young ones to enjoy some favourite pieces of music.
Our ongoing collaboration with the Musicians’ Company and the Countess of Munster Trust helps us bring the newest talents to an eclectic programme and we’re grateful for their support along with the Henry Oldfield Trust for its contribution to the Piano fund.
We’re sure you’ll find a wealth of fantastic performers and familiar and unfamiliar repertoire throughout the season and we hope you’ll continue to support the Club through membership of the Friends Scheme. We look forward to seeing you at the new season’s concert.
