What we're about
The Fantasy Orchestra is a community project led by Jesse D Vernon. We started in Bristol and Paris in 2013 And now we're in Kent too!
At present rehearsals are mostly based in Whitstable, but we're looking for venues in Canterbury and other local towns too if you have any recommendations.
With a motto ‘more is more’, this unique ethos brings together 40 + musicians from all backgrounds to create an electric atmosphere. Our eclectic repertoire, gleaned from 50s and 60s film soundtracks by Morricone, Rota, Barry, Mancini and Bollywood is bolstered by rock and pop favourites from the likes of Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie. Expect the exotic; psychedelic loveliness; rousing choral noise; some choice costumes – and a musical saw. All instruments very welcome
