Some people join a society like KEMS to play or sing, develop their technique
and have a chance to experience new music and old favourites. KEMS is a great
society to allow you to do just that. The beauty of KEMS is that you can do all
these things, in great company.
Our youngest members tend to be in their late teens /early twenties, while our
more experienced members have been with us for decades!
An ordinary rehearsal will be full of cheery greetings and news, as all members
are extremely sociable. New members are made to feel welcome and usually feel
that they 'belong' fairly quickly.
Once the rehearsals are over, there is still a good ninety minutes of drinking time available for choir and
orchestra members who meet in a local pub. All are welcome, if you can cope
with the witty repartee from the locals: 'ooh
– play us a tune' or 'do you play the song they use for football?'
