The reviewers for our concert on 11th November 2023, Brinley and Janet Hughes said "This was another splendid concert by Folkestone Symphony that continues to mature in strength and ability under the orchestral leadership of Floriane Peycelon and conductorship of Rupert Bond. The customary large audience was a tribute to this very popular local orchestra showcasing the wealth of musical talent in the area. Rupert Bond conducted with exemplary clarity and direction throughout."
"It was wonderful to hear Bruch's less well-known Scottish Fantasy, performed with such flair and sensitivity by Korean-born soloist Joo Yeon Sir. The soloist was highly impressive with her lovely tone, and a beautiful singing quality in the slow sections which contrasted with her stunning virtuosity in the sparkling faster sections. The audience seemed spellbound as she played her soaring final cadenza leading to the works exuberant ending. The orchestra accompanied sympathetically, and the clever interweaving of Scottish tunes and interchanges between orchestra and soloist were well managed with a perfect balance."

Car Parking for our Concerts at Holy Trinity Church, Folkestone
Since the recent installation of a new ANPR system in the Leas Cliff Hall Car Park in Sandgate Road (postcode CT20 2BY) we are pleased to confirm that the Town Council have very kindly continued to honour our agreement with them to continue keeping this car park open for us until 11 pm on the evenings of our concerts at Holy Trinity Church (2nd March 2024 and 15th June 2024). It would normally close at 9pm unless there is an event on at the Leas Cliff Hall. Furthermore, this car park is still free after 6pm. Holy Trinity Church is only a 7 minute walk away. It is possible that you may find some alternative street parking, although much of it is now restricted to 'Residents Only'. However, you may find some street parking in the side streets off Sandgate Road, on the Church side.
