Musical Chairs
We’re very sad to report that after playing with the quartet for the last four years John has decided to move on to pursue other musical opportunities.  We’re sorry to see him go, but excited to see what he does next.  He’s still in the Cambridge area so we’ll undoubtedly be bumping into him from ...

The extended quartet family
We’ve not posted anything on here for a while, but the quartet have been far from quiet this year, in fact it’s been one of the busiest (and slightly chaotic) periods we’ve ever had. The quartet family expanded in two linked ways this year.  Carmen took a break from the quartet for a few months ...

Swinging into Summer
It’s been a while since we’ve added an update to these pages, but the quartet haven’t been resting – we’ve had a busy and productive summer. As usual, our summer activities have been a varied mix of mostly outdoor activities.  We started off by returning to  Maddingly Hall to play for the Arthur Rank Hospice ...

Recording some cool music
After a busy summer one of the things left on the quartet’s todo list for 2014 was to arrange another recording session. We hadn’t produced any recordings since John joined the quartet so we wanted to have some new material which better represented our current line up. We had a gap in our schedules in ...

It’s May ball time again!  For the last few years the quartet have been fortunate enough to play at a number of different college events, and this year we visited some new venues as we were booked to play at three May balls during May week. We started the week playing at Newnham college.  We ...

A night at the movies
We’re very sorry to have to report that Angela will be phasing out her commitments with the quartet over the next couple of months, as she’s now moved away from the area.  We’re on the lookout for a permanent new member, but in the mean time we’ve been very happy to welcome David Budd who ...

New recording extracts now available

About a year ago the quartet spent a couple of days recording some of their material in the lovely Queen’s college chapel. At some point we intend collating these recordings with some more material to put together a CD of our music, but in the mean time we’ve put together some extracts of the pieces ...

A brace of balls and a night in the cells
May ball season has arrived again and for a week in early June the centre of Cambridge is transformed into a series of outlandish and extravagant events.  This year the Quartet had been booked to play at two balls at St Catharine’s college and Clare College.  By an unfortunate coincidence both of these events fell ...

Last Saturday saw the Cam Quartet playing at the Harston Rec Fest, an outdoor music festival aiming to raise enough money to replace the outdated play equipment in the Harston recreation ground. The festival ran from lunchtime to late at night, and the Cam Quartet did a 45 minute set on the main stage to ...
