Cambridge Summer Music


Music in Quiet Places brings high quality music and educational workshops to Cambridgeshire villages in a unique series of events in spring and autumn. It provides access to music for those who find it difficult to attend evening concerts in the city, including the elderly, children and families.

• Lack of musical events in villages except where there is a local provider. • Lack of musical educational work and few opportunities for children to work with experienced musicians in village schools. • The difficulties the elderly and families have in getting to events in the city • Low audiences for music in the whole region because it is poorly provided as the number of events in the city centre is so large. • A need to draw in new audiences, particularly children


Cambridge Summer Music will stage two series of Music in Quiet Places in the spring and autumn with some workshops in local schools by the artists in each series in eight different villages. They will be publicised throughout the region in order to attract a following from other villages and engage Cambridge audiences in exploring their environs. Children will not only have the musical opportunities within some of the village schools, but will be given tickets to the concerts free.
