Cambridge Summer Music Festival '18

A feast of fab sounds are guaranteed at the latest festival this summer

Now entering its 40th year, Cambridge Summer Music Festival returns with a busy line-up of classical concerts in atmospheric locations around the city from 5-21 July. Ranging from intimate solo and chamber recitals to large-scale orchestral and choral works, the programme features more than 30 events, promising a vibrant celebration of classical music.

The festival opens on 5 July with Mozart’s 40th Symphony, performed inside one of Cambridge’s most iconic buildings, King’s College Chapel. Elsewhere, you can enjoy the adventurous Brodsky String Quartet at Jesus College Chapel, watch Joanna MacGregor, one of the world’s leading pianists, perform at West Road Concert Hall and see the spectacular Aurora Orchestra play Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9 (from memory, no less!) at Saffron Hall. There’s a world premiere of a new work by Kate Whitley to seek out, and the hugely popular Sounds Green open-air concerts at the Botanic Gardens return.
