The CRSO was formed to nurture excellence through music in the community, and places the local community at the heart of all that it does. The orchestra has given 3 World Premiere performances of music by composers from the University of Kent recently, and the CRSO outreach programme includes a Young Composers' evening which allows young composers from the local area to hear their works played by the orchestra. We offer ticket concessions for young audience members, schools, and community groups. Music lives through performance in front of audiences, and we are looking for more ways to encourage members of the local community who may never have been to a classical music concert, to come and experience these events. In addition to our outreach programmes, we are looking to offer further subsidised tickets to the local community in Medway, and are raising funds in order to be able to do so.
