Popular Orpington choir the Kentones are opening this year’s Leeds Castle Classical Concert on July 9.

The prestigious festival, now in its 38th year, has other performances booked by the likes of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Made up of more than 40 singers, the four-part harmony group have played gigs across Europe.

Earlier this year they were winners of the Top Choir Kent competition.

Organisers behind the concert at Leeds Castle said: “We pride ourselves on the range and quality of the performers at the Leeds Castle Classical Concert and are absolutely delighted that the Kentones are joining the entertainment programme, with their unique barbershop style harmonies.”

The concert this year not only features many popular classics that audiences have come to associate with the event, but

also enjoys the addition of some of John Williams most iconic film themes. Aled Jones will be hosting this year’s event.
