Opening with Weber’s elegant evocation of the 19th century ballroom, this programme explores dance in all its forms.

From the beautiful suite by the virtuoso Russian pianist and composer, Anton Arensky (who celebrates his 150th centenary this year) to the Paris of the 1920s and the quick-silver wit of Germaine Tailleferre. The programme will send you off with a spring in your step with Arthur Benjamin’s ever popular Jamaican Rumba. All Canterbury Christ Church Lunchtime Concerts begin at 1pm and are free entry. Live audience numbers are limited and tickets must be booked in advance. The event will also be live-streamed. Children aged five and over are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. All the concerts feature introductory ‘listening guides’ prepared by the performers and will be followed by a brief opportunity to discuss the work afterwards. There will be a collection for the Student Scholarship Fund. Please note that car parking at St Gregory’s is for CCCU staff only until 5pm.
