We are delighted to announce the launch of the latest member of the KEMS family.
Following a workshop exploring ‘In C’ by Terry Riley (led by orchestral director Tony Houghton), the KEMS Minimalists
group was formed.
This has branched out into exploring other small-scale contemporary and
experimental music which requires flexible instrumentation and varying numbers
of performers and has been renamed KEMS Contemporary.
The group meets on Sunday afternoons every two months and the atmosphere is fun,
welcoming and informal with lots of tea, cake and finishing with a glass of
The next meeting is Sunday, 4th June from 2.00 to 5.00 pm.
All instrumentalists are welcome to come and join in. KEMS Contemporary does not
have a formal performance schedule although members of the group have recently
performed Sound Scape 2016 at the City Art Gallery in Manchester and will be
performing it at Buxton Festival Fringe on 19th July 2017 in The Dome.
