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.
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. Tuition and accommodation in 2014 will be in Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, one of the colleges of Cambridge University.
2014 is the twenty-first year of Cambridge Early Music, and we commemorate the 450th anniversary of the birth of William Shakespeare with courses having a British theme.
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.
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.
