‘A very friendly and welcoming group of people who love singing together and engaging with their audiences, set up in 2013 following a short programme of workshops, Rivervoice reach across the disabled and non-disabled communities and ensure that music making is accessible to all. Our approach is that there is no requirement for members to read a musical score (though these are available) and rehearsal sessions are led by professional musicians, allowing for the development of a broad repertoire, improving musical skills and raising confidence. Alongside a programme of regular concert performances, RiverVoice also aspires to undertake flagship projects to continue building our creative profile and also welcomes invitations to perform within the local community. We are based in Medway but our members are from a wider area.’

Music Making in Medway since 1873: ‘Still going strong in the twenty-first century, has always striven to achieve high standards of singing, from the great choral works to traditional folk songs. While we are a secular society and welcome singers from all beliefs and backgrounds, we have, ever since 1922, performed regularly in Rochester Cathedral, a prestigious venue that we regard with great affection ... We perform three or four concerts a year, often with an orchestra composed of a most talented group of players. They come together as the Rochester Sinfonietta, to perform with us and achieve a high standard ... It is a pleasure and a privilege for an amateur Choral Society to be associated with such fine musicians, professional and amateur. As amateurs, we also get a thrill when performing with renowned professional soloists’.

'We are a non contesting brass band based in Sittingbourne ... In the early days of the band all the players worked at the Paper Mill and were given time off to attend rehearsals and play at concerts. The band was often seen at parades and processions, marching along Sittingbourne High Street.  In recent times the number of players working at the mill has fallen and the band attracts players from across north Kent ... In every concert, we play a balanced programme containing varied music to suit everyone's tastes. Our repertoire contains traditional marches, and selections from popular musicals, but it also contains popular songs and some more unusual pieces as well - we provide a programme to entertain everyone!'
