Welcome to the 2019–20 season of the Cambridge Philharmonic.

We begin the season with an invitation – not just to be in the audience, but to be in the chorus! Our Come & Sing concerts have always been very popular and we’re delighted to be offering the chance for singers of all ages and experience to join us for Carl Orff’s magnum opus. Scores are provided (but you’ll have to bring your own Old Spice…).

Jonathan Dove’s music has been a regular and hugely popular part of our programming for more than a decade now. To mark his 60th birthday, we are delighted to be playing Dove’s trombone concerto, Stargazer, with the international superstar Peter Moore as soloist. With thrilling works from Adams and Prokofiev framing the concerto, the programme overflows with an irresistible mix of heartfelt melodies and orchestral fireworks.

For our annual opera-in-concert we are travelling to the pyramids of Egypt for Verdi’s Aida. From the spectacular Triumphal March to the impassioned aria Celeste Aida, it’s a work packed with high emotion and dramatic tension and we are joined by an exceptional cast, led by British soprano Linda Richardson and the American tenor Michael Wade Lee.

In this year’s January family concert we ask the question ‘which instrument shall I play?’. With the help of the brilliant Ruth Rosales (as well as a Musical, Magical Hat) we hope to offer you an answer. In March we celebrate the 250th birthday of Beethoven, and welcome back the virtuoso pianist Martin James Bartlett, whilst in May we delve into the dark and brooding world of the romantic Russians Rachmaninov and Mussorgsky.

The season ends in the grandeur of Ely Cathedral with Mahler’s unforgettable Second Symphony – one of the most uplifting, moving and life-affirming works in the repertoire.

We look forward to seeing you at our concerts – and thank you for supporting the Cambridge Philharmonic.
