CAMBRIDGE SUMMER MUSIC was founded in 1979. It exists to promote live classical music of the highest calibre in Cambridge and the surrounding villages. It supports young artists at the beginning of their careers as well as exciting ensembles and orchestras, bringing the works of living composers and the best of familiar and unfamiliar repertoires to both local community and visitors to our great city and beyond.
