Bringing live music to green spaces around the city, Music in the Parks makes a welcome return in July.
A programme of free Sunday concerts organised by Cambridge City Council, the series will feature eight in total, beginning on 9 July at Coleridge Rec, when the Royston Town Band will be entertaining the crowds. They’re followed by ska favourites Big 10, playing at Jesus Green on 16 July, before Haverhill Youth and Community Band pitch up on King George V Playing Fields on 6 August. On 13 August, it’s the turn of Rajasthani Brass Band at Jesus Green, before Vocal Remix Choir arrive to impress with unique twists on popular hits at St Albans Rec on 20 August. There’s a chance to catch Somersham Town Band on 3 September at Nightingale Recreation Ground, and Soham Comrades Band at Cherry Hinton Hall on 10 September. The series concludes with a concert from 4 Villages Orchestra on the lawn of the Graduate hotel on 17 September.
Welcoming the forthcoming summer concerts, Chris Douglas, general manager at the hotel, says: “Graduate Cambridge is delighted to be sponsoring Music in the Parks for the second year running. We are really looking forward to hosting a concert again in our beautiful riverside garden setting. This time, 4 Villages Orchestra – a 40-piece group specialising in favourite themes from film and TV – will put on a great performance!”
