About Us

Cambridge is a deeply musical city, with several orchestras, brass bands and world-renowned choirs to its name. Yet, despite the huge number of talented and enthusiastic instrumentalists that live here, until a couple of years ago there was a curious gap in the local musical scene. The symphonic wind orchestra is a format that brings together a vast array of winds, brass, percussion and string bass to create a sound that is colourful and unique. It's a very popular medium with both audiences and players alike.

Cambridge Symphonic Winds was created at the end of 2008 to bring the symphonic wind orchestra to Cambridge and to give players a new creative outlet. We always intend to showcase the breadth and virtuosity of wind orchestra repertoire. We hope there is something for everyone, whether you prefer traditional wind orchestra compositions, serious contemporary music or stylish showpieces.
