Welcome to KEMS
Who we are
We’re a music society comprising four sections: a large mixed-voice Choir, an Orchestra, a Concert Band and KEMS Contemporary. Our friendly members, who cover a wide age range, have one thing in common: we take making music very seriously, always striving for the best possible performances.
The Society celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 2006-7 with a performance of Verdi's Requiem at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester; click on the picture below to listen to an extract.
The standard annual subscription covers the cost of joining the Choir, Orchestra or Concert Band.
There are over 30 two-hour rehearsals each season led by our professional musical directors, and the subscription covers the cost of all music hire and costs associated with mounting concerts.
In addition to our standard season we organise a number of optional extra events and performing opportunities (some of which incur an additional charge) including a day-long workshop and a programme of summer chamber music groups.
