A friendly group, no experience necessary and new members always welcome. We meet in Tonbridge Parish Church on the 2nd and 4th Fridays, either in the main church or in the upper room from 10.30am - 12 noon. The cafe in the church is open from 10am when members can have a coffee before we meet, if they wish.
The purpose of this group is to explore the folk music of the British Isles. Players and singers, whether novice or not, are welcome.
For anyone who likes Jazz and/or wishes to know more about it. Sessions include guest performers, talks and demonstrations on topics such as jazz styles, musicians, singers and many others, by members or guests. Several members have taken the opportunity to introduce jazz topics of their choice. We will also arrange visits to jazz concerts, clubs or other jazz related events.
We meet each month. Come when the subject interests you. We also support concerts in Tonbridge by Tonbridge Music Club, Tonbridge Philharmonic Society, and at Tonbridge Parish Church.
This is an open group. Any Tonbridge U3A member may attend a meeting, if the subject interests them, but please let us know. Meetings are usually in, Tonbridge. We saw Marriage of Figaro at Glyndebourne in 2013.
There are three groups - Beginners , Extra and Intermediate - for anyone who enjoys playing recorders and making music with others - for fun!
Members enjoy singing, making music, having fun and developing vocal and musical abilities. Previous experience in singing or knowledge of music notation not necessary. It is planned to incorporate players of different musical instruments and varying abilities to accompany the singing. The group is led by John Lawrence, who has a rich experience in performing and developing musicians and bands, as well as some background in choral singing.
This group meets twice a month in the evening. No experience needed!
