Philharmonic First for City
The county’s newest orchestra, the Kent Philharmonic Orchestra, is holding its first-ever concert of magical classical music at its debut performance on Saturday 29th September at the Colyer Fergusson Hall, University of Kent.
The programme for the performance comprises:

Director of the Kent Philharmonic Orchestra is Lithuanian-born conductor Marius Reklaitis, who graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University with an Honours in Music before pursuing Conducting Studies at Masters level. Marius will be joined on stage at the Colyer Fergusson Hall, the city’s purpose-built centre for music performance, by a talented trio of musicians – Leader of BBC Symphony Orchestra Stephen Bryant (Leader), Christopher Green (Flute) and Nicolette Chin (Harp).
“Marius is a talented and committed conductor. He works with fine attention to detail and his natural enthusiasm and passion for music is inspiring and motivating for his fellow musicians.”
