This new orchestra promises quality, vibrancy and increasingly professional music in Kent and the UK, including performances and collaborations with internationally renowned soloists and guest orchestras from all over the world.
The Kent Philharmonic Orchestra (KPO) was formed in 2017: a dynamic and flexible symphony orchestra. The Kent Philharmonic orchestra will give talented young musicians in Kent regular opportunities to rehearse and perform alongside professional musicians whilst bringing top notch live music to Kent's halls and venues. As a result, in the very near future, we are hoping that the KPO will secure a unique place in the social and cultural life of South East England.
• To integrate young talented musicians into professional performance spaces.
• To design an educational programme in tandem with other young musicians. Professional musicians would spearhead and implement this project, organising extra-curricular activities for KPO students by providing tuition to individuals and groups.
• To strengthen International Relations by integrating ethnic minorities into the orchestral business. This would contribute to reducing the cultural divide in the UK, while international interchange would strengthen relations between foreign musicians.
• Enable young musicians to gain experience and increased employability.
