Welcome to the Madingley Concerts
A series of free concerts given by leading University instrumentalists
The Madingley Concerts take place at Madingley Hall, home of the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education (ICE). The concerts complement the Madingley Lecture series, and are designed to showcase new student work alongside more traditional repertoire.
8 March 2015, 2.30pm: Tom Blomfield (oboe) and Alexei Watkins (horn), both students at the Royal Academy of Music, join Cambridge scholar, Alex Woolf (piano), for a programme exploring the full spectrum of colour and expression offered by this unusual combination, which includes the premiere of a new trio by Woolf.
22 March 2015, 2.30pm: Ghislaine McMullin gives a recital of Russian cello music including the Shostakovich sonata. Please note this concert was originally scheduled for 15 February 2015.
Further dates will be announced in due course.
