Maidstone Wind Symphony



After carefully monitoring the ongoing situation regarding coronavirus, Maidstone Wind Symphony has regretfully decided to postpone its Journey to the Stars concert.

The family concert and workshop programme for young musicians was due to be held on Saturday, 28 March at Mote Hall, Maidstone Leisure Centre, but will no longer be going ahead on that date. The orchestra is exploring options to hold the event on a later date and will be contacting all ticket holders and workshop participants in the coming days.

MWS Chair Sarah Wimsett said: "Our main priority in taking this decision is the health and safety of our members and audience, and we have taken on board the actions of other groups and wind/brass organisations, as well as the general Government guidance as the picture continues to evolve."

The band is continuing to monitor plans for its next concert - the Festival of Wind and Brass - on 3 May 2020. We are also continuing with plans for our end-of-season Carnival of Colours chamber music concert on Saturday, 11 July, and for an exciting 2020/21 season which will include a wellbeing concert and an American-themed 4 July concert with trombone virtuoso Brett Baker.  

Meanwhile, in recognition of the impact of coronavirus on many of the musicians with whom MWS regularly performs, the band is encouraging its supporters to donate to the The Royal Society of Musicians, a charity which helps freelance musicians losing income due to the ongoing situation and the hardships this presents. 

If people feel able to donate, simply visit https://www.rsmgb.org/fundraising/. Please reference Maidstone Wind Symphony when donating.
