Cambridge Graduate Orchestra


Aim of the Orchestra

The orchestra was founded in 2004 by Alex Reid in order to bring together graduate musicians dispersed across the university and town and provide a sociable environment in which to rehearse and meet other like-minded musicians. The Orchestra gave its first concert conducted by Peter Tregear in March 2005.

The Cambridge Graduate Orchestra welcomes graduates, post graduates, fellows, mature students and other interested instrumentalists from within the university and city. Rehearsals occur throughout the calendar year.
