Cambridge Summer Music

Cambridge Summer Music Festival 2014!

This year's Cambridge Summer Music Festival runs from 18 July to 2 August and has nearly 40 events. View the Festival Brochure here.

The Festival offers a feast of music with our hallmark mix of quality and variety: large-scale choral works, delightful chamber pieces and intimate solo recitals - as well as jazz concerts, world music, street performers and our ever-popular Music for Kids programme.

The legendary Sir Roger Norrington directs the Zürcher Kammerorchester and Zürcher Sing-Akademie in a performance of Bach's St John Passion. Acclaimed pianist Joanna MacGregor, plays the complete Goldberg Variations by J.S. Bach, while the great oboist Nicholas Daniel will perform with the Haffner Ensemble. The well-established Festival Chorus concert, with singers from all over East Anglia conducted by John Rutter, will feature Fauré’s beautiful Requiem. Pianist Lucy Parham and actor Henry Goodman present a fascinating programme of words and music on the Life and Loves of Claude Debussy. Our popular Festival mini-series are all on offer this year including the Fitz Proms in the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Lunchtime Chamber Music and the Sounds Green concerts in the Botanic Garden. The Festival is brought to a wonderful close with a Finale Concert given by 'cellist Natalie Clein and Friends.

As part of our Music for Kids programme children aged 10-14 years can take part in a 5-day workshop culminating in two performances of Joseph and the amazing technicolour dreamcoat.
