Tonbridge Philharmonic



A new Director of Music; and introducing a wealth of performances in early 2022

A joyful and happy reunion took place in 2021. Performers, choir and orchestra, and audience alike joined in the spirit of the psalmist and composer, Hubert Parry. All united to celebrate being together after many months of isolating lockdown, and to crown the event, Naomi Butcher, the Society’s new Director of Music, was welcomed. Her energy and enthusiasm immediately invigorated the performance. Robin Morrish, President of Tonbridge Philharmonic Society said “There was a keen air of expectation in the regal surroundings of the Chapel of St Augustine at Tonbridge School… with passionate performances from choir, orchestra and conductor alike, Naomi Butcher has brought a breath of fresh air to the Tonbridge Philharmonic Society.”
