Tenor Nick Pritchard and Piano Libby Burgess

In February 2019 Cambridge Song launched the Cambridge Song Festival, a vibrant new Festival of Song for the city of Cambridge.

After the huge success of 2019 plans are afoot for a second full-scale Festival; in the meantime we couldn't resist more Cambridge Song in 2020, and are delighted to announce A Young Man's Exhortation, an evening of songs by Gerald Finzi and Benjamin Britten performed by the renowned tenor Nick Pritchard and pianist Libby Burgess, and presented in collaboration with Trinity Hall College.

Pianist Libby Burgess is known for her ‘warm, sensitive pianism’ (The Observer), her musical intelligence, and her generosity of collaborative spirit. In 2019 she performed the complete Schubert cycles – partnering Jonathan Lemalu, Nicholas Mulroy, and Marcus Farnsworth – at Yorkshire’s New Paths Festival, of which she is the founding Artistic Director.
