Cambridgeshire Music Live

  • 1st March 2019 - 31st March 2019

Cambridgeshire Music Live is an exciting annual festival of events, offering young people a taste of world-class music up close; players from top orchestras and bands come into schools and venues across the county, giving concerts, running workshops, and playing alongside young musicians. The big change this year is that Cambridgeshire Live is now Bedford Live and Norfolk Live as we work with music hub partners.

For the 2019 Music Live Festival, even more bands are on the agenda. Early years and pre-school settings are included, along with rather more singing than last year. We welcome Megson, Simon Mayor and Hilary James, Eboracum Baroque, Sonrisa, and Songspiel; all joining us for the first time, and we are pleased to see the return of AAMplify. Continuing their wide range of musical genres are our festival regulars, Britten Sinfonia, Goldfield Ensemble, Grand Union Orchestra, Brass Funkeys, Blues and Roots Ensemble, Brook Street Band, Breaking Tradition, and Travelling by Tuba.

All schools are encouraged to book a concert, and if cluster schools join together, children can benefit from the additional experience of workshops.

Concerts and workshops are targeted for specific key stages, ranging from nursery and pre-school settings to Key Stage 4. Workshops may be included and will be tailored to suit individual schools or clusters of schools, and can encompass other art forms. Workshops and concerts can support students with Arts Award Discover, and schools with achieving Artsmark.
