The Cambridge Song Festival

A dynamic new festival of song

15 - 17 February 2019

The Cambridge Song Festival is a brand new festival devoted to the creation and celebration of song. Launching in February 2019, its aim is to bring a dedicated city-wide festival of song to the heart of Cambridge, giving life to new opportunities and audiences for the performance and enjoyment of song. Drawing together internationally-renowned artists and exceptional young musicians, the 2019 Festival features evening concerts and an afternoon class, held in some of the city's most beautiful venues. Moving from Jesus to St John’s to Sidney Sussex Colleges, we trace a journey through Cambridge in song. Join us as we embark on this vibrant and dynamic new musical event - we look forward to welcoming you in February!
