Music@Malling's Summer concert series, Earth, Water, Air and Fire, explores synaesthesia, music and art, in a series of concerts from 9 to 11 June 2023 presented by Chamber Domaine and conductor Thomas Kemp in historic venues in Kent including All Saints' Church, Tudeley and St Mary's Church, West Malling.

The series features performances of eight synaesthesia-influenced works by Deborah Pritchard with inspirations including Marc Chagall (with a performance in All Saints' Church, Tudeley which has a complete set of Chagall windows), and Maggi Hambling, who has very recently created a painting in response to Deborah Pritchard's piece Light, for which they were collaborators, which will be displayed at the festival in June. The concerts also feature Handel's Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks.

The main Music@Malling Festival runs from 22-30 September 2023, and will include premieres by Gavin Bryars, Brian Elias, Deborah Pritchard, and Judith Weir, plus an installation by Anish Kapoor with music by Brian Elias.
