This weekend Thomas Kemp launches the inaugural Music@Malling Festival: an international festival of music that draws together the community with an exciting programme of events that bring international artists to historical local venues in West Malling, Kent.
Running this year from September 30th until October 2nd, the festival will be an annual event that brings unique and fantastic concerts to the local community, as well as providing a groundbreaking outreach project that will inspire creativity and music making in local primary schools.
Each year the work of a living composer will be profiled alongside great composers from history. This year Mark Anthony Turnage is the featured composer, and his music will be heard alongside works of Mahler and Mozart.
Highlights of this year’s festival include a performance of Mahler’s fourth symphony with Yeree Suh, and two performances of Peter and the Wolf, as well as an opportunity to meet Mark Anthony Turnage during a pre-concert talk.
