Cambridge Early Music Summer Schools and Concerts

Cambridge Early Music runs summer schools - short intensive study courses - in baroque, renaissance and medieval music, and organises an annual programme of concerts, many of which take place alongside the summer schools.

Founded in 1992, Cambridge Early Music was granted charitable status in 2009, confirming our status as a leading provider of early music education.

Stile Antico, Saturday 15 August 2015

We are very sorry that Saturday evening's concert by Stile Antico in Trinity College Chapel had to be abandoned.

A member of the audience became suddenly very ill at the end of the first half of the concert. The emergency services were immediately called and medical assistance was given by off-duty doctors attending the concert.

A first responder arrived and was able to stabilise the individual; it was decided, however, that the patient should not be removed from the venue without the assistance of an ambulance crew.

This was of course a difficult and sensitive situation. Initially it seemed likely that the ambulance would come quickly, but - following the initial treatment and diagnosis - the individual was designated a low priority, and it eventually became clear that it was not possible to obtain an estimated arrival time for the ambulance. Because of this continuing uncertainly, we felt we had no option but to abandon the concert.

We apologise for the disappointment and inconvenience this incident caused.

While our costs remain unchanged, we consider it only fair to offer audience members who wish to do so to claim a refund of up to 50%. Those with pre-paid tickets may do this by emailing info@cambridgeearlymusic.org: this will be processed through PayPal. Audience members who purchased tickets in cash, or by cheque on the door, will need to provide additional bank details.

Please note that the office is now closed and will reopen on Tuesday 25 August; therefore there will be a delay in resolving any such claims.

Stile Antico were very understanding about the situation, and will be returning to perform in our concert series on Saturday 29 October 2016.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Our thoughts are with the individual concerned.

Cambridge Early Music Summer Schools are short study courses in Baroque, Renaissance and Medieval music. The courses offer specialist tuition by world-famous professional musicians. The summer schools are designed for amateur, semi-professional and professional musicians, and offer a high standard of tuition in a friendly and supportive context.


Book tickets  »

Concerts are organised throughout the year, with many occurring alongside the summer courses. Leading early music ensembles and soloists perform in historic Cambridge venues. In addition, we organise occasional festivals with a concentration of concerts and other events over a weekend, exploring a composer's work or a theme in depth.


Become a Friend  »

The Friends support the activities of Cambridge Early Music through payment of a modest annual subscription, and through practical help by delivering post locally, helping with occasional catering, filling envelopes and sticking on stamps, and stewarding at concerts. In exchange, Friends are given priority booking for concerts, and have seats reserved for them in the front rows. Friends are also invited to special receptions and other events, and qualify to buy season tickets for concerts at a reduced price.

Patrons give us a higher level of financial support, receiving more benefits, and our heartfelt thanks.


Peter Nash of Alpha CRC, generously sponsors our concert series. The Friends' launch party is generously supported by Cambridge University Press. Cambridge Early Music is extremely grateful for the generosity of its sponsors, and of many others who have given sums large and small to support the continuation of the concert series, and to assist those of limited means to attend the summer schools.
