Classical Music Festivals
CAMBRIDGE MUSIC FESTIVAL
If classical music is more up your street than contemporary pop, you might enjoy the annual Cambridge Music Festival, which lasts for almost two weeks in November. It caters for all tastes, whether you like Beethoven, Mozart or Vivaldi, and includes traditional orchestras, violin quartets and the occasional upbeat version of classical tunes. International performers rub shoulders with rising stars and you can pick and choose which performances to see.
Enjoy the architecture and glorious sights of Cambridge while you’re there! Visit www. cambridgemusicfestival.co.uk for more information.
THE ALDEBURGH FESTIVAL
The Aldeburgh Festival on the Suffolk coast is another fabulous annual music event. It takes place in June every year with classic music and dance, including orchestras, soloists, choirs and quartets.
You can enjoy music on the bandstand, or in the theatre. There are also walks, talks, films and a varied fringe programme.
Aldeburgh prides itself on its fine dining, friendly atmosphere and beautiful landscapes. The pebble beaches, fishing boats, Tudor parish church and rows of colourful houses give this quaint seaside town unique character and charm. Find out more at www.snapemaltings.co.uk.
