Medway Youth Orchestra is launched


In the company of the Mayor and Mayoress of Medway Councillor Barry and Joyce Kemp, I had the honour helping to launch the new Medway Youth Orchestra at the St George’s Centre yesterday.

Pupils from schools across Medway had participated in a Workshop organised by Dynamics the Medway Music Hub and The Sixteen.

Our young musicians had been working along with the The Sixteens Associate Conductor Eamonn Dougan , Sarah Sexton (strings) and Susan Addision (woodwind and brass) on pieces by Monteverdi in an edition arranged for modern instruments.

In my closing address I couldn’t resist indulging in a secret wish to conduct an Orchestra and I am photographed above with our young stars who performed brilliantly.

You might be interested in the forthcoming Concert at Rochester Cathedral on the 29th January.
