Schools’ exchanges: Judd pupils will visit Heusenstamm in May (13th-21st) and the exchange visit to Tonbridge will be in July (1st-10th). A link has been established between the Slade School and the Matthias-Claudius-Schule in Rembrücken.

Further dates for your diary:
19 March 2016 - Tonbridge School Chapel: Messiah, joint concert with Tonbridge Philharmonic Society and Heusenstamm Evangelische Kantorei.
The triennial exchanges between the Tonbridge Philharmonic Society and the Kantorei began in 1989. Over the years members of both societies have become good friends. Notable concerts include Bach’s Mass in B minor and the Tonbridge Te Deum, composed by Dr Jürgen Blume for TPS and performed jointly 50 years after the end of World War II. Dr. Blume and the then Music Director, Wolfgang Weyrich, were made Vice Presidents of the Tonbridge Philharmonic Society.
On this, the tenth exchange, we are delighted to welcome 29 performers and 6 supporters of the Kantorei, including their music director, Dorothea Baumann, to perform this glorious music with us. Members of TPS choir and orchestra will be travelling to Heusenstamm for a long weekend, to stay with hosts from the Kantorei for the repeat performance of Messiah in Maria Himmelskron Kirche on Sunday 12th June.
June 2017 - Joint holiday with Freundschaftskreis to Trier (Moselle area).
