KCMS celebrates a successful year

The King's College Music Society (KCMS) has had a hugely successful year so far. In Michaelmas Term the KCMS hosted a 'Come and Sing Faure's Requiem' event in the Chapel, a concert for fresher’s in the drawing room of the Provost's Lodge, as well as its termly orchestral concert. Amongst other works, the Michaelmas Term concert included an accomplished rendition of Franck's Symphony in D minor.

On 19 February the Lent Term concert featured talented musicians from King's, including recent alumni, King's Voices (the college's mixed voice choir) and King's Choral Scholars performing a programme of Beethoven.

Plans are now under way for Easter term (April - June). The KCMS hopes to host a small recital series, showcasing musicians from both within King's and across the university. The highlight of the KCMS year is coming together, too: the illustrious May Week Concert, which will be held on Monday 18 June.

The concert programme is yet to be finalised, but an orchestra is coming together to perform Barber's Violin Concerto, and both the college's choirs will come together under the direction of Stephen Cleobury to sing Handel's Dixit Dominus. Afterwards, as traditional, the doors at the West End of the Chapel will be opened and the audience will go onto the Back Lawn for wine and strawberries.
