WildKat PR is delighted to welcome back Music@Malling for the fourth time. Music@Malling brings world-class artists to historic local venues in West Malling, Kent, combining a hugely successful outreach programme with a firm commitment to new music. This year sees the seventh iteration of the festival, in which 24 events will take place over 10 days, featuring music of leading contemporary composers, alongside classical, jazz and folk music. The festival aims to engage with the local community through education and outreach work and to provide events that both enrich and entertain audiences. Music@Malling aspires to develop innovative and creative projects that are of high quality and that raise the profile of music. The artists are involved in mentoring and supporting young musicians and composers across Kent.

Music@Malling

This year, outreach work includes 1400 primary school children from 16 schools partaking in a project focusing on Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes as well as 480 children performing in four concerts alongside the festivals resident ensemble, Chamber Domaine, and narrator Matthew Sharp. Furthermore, in conjunction with Sound and Music, Go compose!, gives 10 young composers from Kent the opportunity to compose a piece of music that is performed and recorded in one day under the expert guidance of Simon Pearce (Royal College of Music and Purcell School) and Chamber Domaine. The festival also offers Meet the Composer events with composers such as Alexander Goehr and Paul Patterson, and mentoring workshops with the Artistic Director of Ronnie Scott’s, James Pearson.

Concerts will include Chamber Domaine performing Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis and Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Artists range from harpsichord player Steven Devine, violinist Thomas Bowes to guitarist Craig Ogden performing Bach, Dowland, Britten, and Albeniz. Flute player Sami Junnonen will perform music by Bach, Sciarrino, Debussy, Berio, Takemitsu, as well as the premiere of a new work by Tomi Räisänen.

Thomas Kemp, Artistic Director, says: ‘Our seventh festival promises to be our best yet with a wide range of music and lots of interesting programmes and opportunities for music lovers young and old. Contemporary music by Alexander Goehr and Paul Patterson rubs shoulders with works by Bach, Mozart, Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Gershwin as well as jazz, world, folk and vocal music across 24 events. I am particularly proud of our work with local schools –engaging young people in creative activities – many for the first time.’

Founded in 1895, the BBC Proms are a big part of British culture and the 2017 season begins tonight. For eight weeks of the summer, daily classical music concerts take place at the Royal Albert Hall and other venues across London, including Cadogan Hall, Stage@The Dock and Wilton’s Music Hall.

The term Prom is short for promenade concert, and refers to the outdoor concerts of the 18th century where the audience were able to stroll around while the orchestra played. Since then, the concerts have moved inside and, in the context of the BBC Proms, promming refers to the popular tradition of queueing outside the Royal Albert Hall on the day of the concert for the chance to get a £6 ticket for the standing areas inside the hall. Will you be a “prommer” this summer? Click here for some helpful tips on how to become a Pro-Prommer this year!

Royal Albert Hall: BBC Proms 2017

With the opening of the BBC Proms 2017 tonight, the WildKat team have put together a list of their highlights for this year…

Prom 35, the John Wilson Orchestra performing Oklahoma, appears to be a particular favourite in the office this year due to the magical sound that the orchestra creates and the energy that radiates from them when they perform. Not strictly classical, this prom would be a great one to go to for those who are novice prommers. Not convinced? Let The Spectator’s Richard Bratby, along with John Wilson, tell you why Rodgers and Hammerstein should be taken as seriously as Beethoven.

Another popular choice is Prom 10 with the Aurora Orchestra. Last year the ensemble performed their first prom from memory and it was such a unique experience – every single member of the orchestra completely engaged with the music and the conductor. This year they are performing Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ from memory and we can’t wait.

If you are looking for a musical fusion, then Prom 41 is for you. It brings together Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar, combining Glass’s American Minimalism with Shankar’s sitar and the traditions of Hindustani classical music. The Britten Sinfonia and Karen Kamensek are joined by Shankar’s daughter, sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar.

The Cincinatti Symphony Orchestra makes its Proms debut this year and, since they are one of our clients, the WildKat team are very excited about it. They will be bringing works by two celebrated American composers and we are really looking forward to seeing everything come together.

This evening, the Hong Kong Music Series begins with an inaugural concert celebrating the fusion of Eastern and Western classical music at St. John’s Smith Square. This is just the first in a series of concerts celebrating the music of Hong Kong and the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Involving over 70 musicians and creatives from Hong Kong, five concerts will be performed in prestigious venues across central London. The Hong Kong Arts Development Council has overseen the organisation of this music series, and they are keen to share the talent and skill of their home musicians with the UK.

WildKat PR assisted with a creative campaign day on London’s South Bank to promote the concert series, and engage the public with some of Hong Kong’s more traditional music. The day involved live music performances from a local Chinese music ensemble, traditional ‘bubble’ waffles, and a social media competition to win £100 vouchers from one of the Hong Kong Music Series’ main sponsors, Dorsett Hotels . Many passers-by paused to listen to the beautiful sounds of the ehru, guzheng and pipa, having never heard or seen anything like it before! As our team handed out leaflets advertising the concerts in the music series and chatting to people interested in the music and delicious, sweet smells from the bubble waffle stall, we were confident that the Hong Kong Music Series would be a success.

The upcoming VIP reception on the 7th of July will see the Hong Kong Arts Development team welcoming esteemed guests from Hong Kong and London to meet the performers of Music Interflow – A Dialogue of Two Cultures. The reception will also feature speeches, anticipating the excitement of the upcoming concerts with their diverse musical genres, ranging from classical music, Chinese music theatre, contemporary music and opera. This first concert will represent both the Chinese and British cultural heritage with a repertoire of both classical and contemporary works. Furthermore, the concert will mark the important anniversary of a momentous historical event in the annals of Hong Kong citizens’ close relationship with the British people.

Other intriguing concerts include Beyond the Senses, atmospheric Music Theatre by Law Wing-fai which runs for one show only on the 15th of July at London’s Shaw Theatre. Law Wing-fai is one of Hong Kong’s leading composers, using the contemporary theatre as a means of expression, revolving around the natural timbres of Chinese musical instruments, poetry, songs, music, dance and visual elements to create an Oriental and reflective atmosphere in this production.

We can’t wait to get started, don’t forget to let us know if you’re at any of the concerts! Click here to find out more about the Hong Kong Music Series.
