WHO WE ARE
Cambridge Philharmonic, founded in 1887, is one of Britain’s oldest and most distinguished music societies. It comprises both a full symphony orchestra and large chorus, and performs in venues such as West Road Concert Hall, Saffron Hall, King’s College Chapel and Ely Cathedral.
The society’s members are drawn from in and around Cambridge and represent a wide range of ages and backgrounds. Under the baton of Music Director Harry Sever, Cambridge Philharmonic performs a wide range of repertoire as part of its annual concert series, including an opera, family concert, and classical and contemporary works.
Rehearsals are held throughout the year in term time, usually at Chesterton Community College, Gilbert Road. The orchestra rehearses on Mondays from 7.15-9.45pm, and the chorus on Tuesdays from 7.30-9.45pm.
