Founded in 1976 by June Clements, the Lydian Orchestra provides unique orchestral experience for individual talented young musicians in Kent, Sussex and Surrey.  Unusually for a youth orchestra, it is managed by the older players themselves, assisted by a committee of professional musicians and/or parents, and it is independently self-funded.  These young musicians get together three times a year - Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays - for an intensive week's course and concert in the Sevenoaks/Tonbridge area.  We have much to celebrate in our 40th year – do join us this Sunday 17 July at the Pamoja Hall in Sevenoaks for what promises to be an outstanding evening of music and joy! www.lydian.org.uk Pamoja Hall - The Space Performing Arts Centre, Sevenoaks DD/MM/YYYY
