A thriving and friendly amateur orchestra whose aims are to promote enjoyment of classical music to our players and the community. We perform three concerts a year in Canterbury and East Kent mainly in aid of local charities, and are always happy to welcome new players.
Canterbury Musicians (known until 2008 as Canterbury Musicians' Register) is a forum through which musicians from throughout East Kent may contact each other. Any musician or musical organisation, professional or amateur, regardless of age or standard, who practises any type of music, and wishes to contact or be contacted by other people in the area to play or sing music together, is eligible to join. In recent years, annual charity concerts have raised sums for a wide range of charities, including the Motor Neurone Disease Association (£188 in 2010), Cancer Research UK (for pancreatic cancer research, £267 in 2012), Families Against Neuroblastoma (£205 in 2013), Age UK (£243 in 2015) and Parkinsons' UK (£377 in 2016). Social meetings, at which members may sing and play music to and with each other and chat, are held two or three times per year. Prospective members, wanting to find out more about us, are welcome to contact us by e-mail or telephone (Ian on 01227 762547 or John on 01227 478223), and may discuss the possibility of attending a social as a guest: the next will be on 25th May, 2017.
