Summer schools

 

Cambridge Early Music offers two residential study weeks, one on Baroque music, the other on Renaissance music. Both are for experienced instrumentalists and singers, working together and separately in chamber groups and large ensembles. Now in our 22nd year, CEM courses are firmly established as the highlight of the year for a growing number of amateur and aspiring professional instrumentalists and singers. They are also recognized as a stepping-stone to performing careers in Renaissance and Baroque music.

We welcome musicians from all over the world to study the techniques and styles of early music in the delightful atmosphere of Sidney Sussex College, situated in the heart of historic Cambridge.

Our tutors are highly acclaimed both as teachers and performers. They share their expertise through intensive tuition and concerts in an informal, non-competitive and creative social context, with an emphasis on shared learning rather than formal masterclasses.

Our courses are recognised for their success in accommodating players of different levels, and for the chamber music sessions which are organised and coached by the tutors - a feature we believe is unique to CEM. This ensures that no one is left out, that students are introduced to new repertoire and that pieces are tailored to each ensemble.

We have a Bursary Fund to support those whose financial situation would prevent them from attending courses without assistance, particularly music students and those setting out on a career in music.

You will be warmly welcomed on either - or both - of our 2015 courses.

We have a small Bursary Fund to support those whose financial situation would prevent them from attending courses without assistance. We are particularly keen to encourage music students and those setting out on a career in music, for whom these courses will be exceptionally helpful. The Eastern Early Music Forum (to help participants from Eastern regions) and a few individual benefactors contribute to the Fund. Please consider whether you could give us similar support. For more information, see Bursaries.

Cambridge Early Music is a registered charity. Donations are invited to help CEM to flourish. Please ask for details of how you can help us.

You will be warmly welcomed on either - or both - of our 2015 courses.
