Saturday 10th September 2016
2016 marks 100 years since the Battle of the Somme. To commemorate the event the Imperial War Museum has commisioned the film music composer Laura Rossi to write a soundtrack to accompany the 1916 film of the battle. 100 orchestras across the land will perform the new work alongside live screenings of the film between July 2016 and July 2017. On Saturday the 10th of September 2016 the Cambridge Concert Orchestra are bringing the project to Cambridge. We will perform in St George's church (Chesterton) in conjunction with the Cambridge Film Trust. We are enormously proud to be part of this national event. You can find out more about the project on the project's website: www.somme100film.com
Future venues and charities
In 2015 the CCO raised over £4,900 for other charities through our concerts.
We are always eager to play in new venues and we are now taking bookings for next year. If you would like to arrange a concert please email our Concert Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for a strong bass trombone player to join us in September 2016. We also have vacancies in our violin and viola sections. We have a healthy membership in all other sections; however, we often need players to deputise in the absence of our regular players, so do please get in touch. Please email email@example.com.
If you would like to be added to our email list and be notified of forthcoming concerts etc. please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This term's repertoire
You can get a sense of what we play by glancing through the music we have in our pads presently. Some of this will show up in our forthcoming concerts and some pieces are just there because we enjoy playing them in rehearsals.
