The Musique Cordiale autumn weekend in Kent is organised by the Musique-Cordiale International Festival & Academy, an exciting 2-week summer festival of classical music, song, oratorio and opera, set in medieval hill towns in Provence. The weekend in Kent features some of the artists, musicians and the choir and orchestra of the annual summer festival which has taken place in France for the past 15 years. This weekend in Kent is also a long-standing set of events, first staged in 2005 (with the Bach B Minor Mass in Faversham church) and recently annually with 3 concerts each November. The organisers live locally.
