We enjoyed a superb evening of music and song at the recent launch of the Medway Youth Orchestra and the Medway Youth Choir in the company of the Mayor of Medway Councillor Barry Kemp and the Mayoress Mrs Joyce Kemp at the historic Dockyard Church recently.

The Musical Director for the evening was the brilliant Conductor Alan Vincent.

The Orchestra and Choir are run in partnership with Harry Christophers’ the Sixteen. This relationship sprang from Dynamics’ The Sixteen Workshop in January 2015, which brought young musicians from around Medway together to work with the world-renowned choral group and instrumentalists from their period orchestra. The Sixteen will continue to work with both ensembles providing fantastic musical direction, mentoring and opportunities to attend their concerts.

Medway Music Association and Dynamics work with thousands of Medway young people in schools across the authority and the good news is that Medway have moved from the bottom of the pack ten years ago to the top in music provision.

Photographs above shows Alan conducting the Medway Youth Orchestra and below the Orchestra and Choir receive well earned standing ovations.
