Cambridge Music Festival

The 2014 Cambridge Music Festival (CMF) runs from Wednesday 12 – Saturday 22 November. Each year, Cambridge Music Festival explores music, education and technology – three areas for which Cambridge is renowned worldwide. World-class artists feature in orchestral, choral and chamber music concerts, alongside a programme of education and technology-based events.
