"This was more than a performance; more than an interpretation, even ... this was simply great music-making by any standard"
So wrote music critic James Day after a performance of Mahler's Ninth symphony by the Cambridge Philharmonic Society in November 2002. The Cambridge Philharmonic Society: a group of nearly 200 members who play and sing music for the sheer love and art of it, aiming, always, at the highest possible standards of performance.

The Cambridge Philharmonic Society comprises a thriving choir and orchestra. Members come from all walks of life. The singers and players represent such diverse occupations as doctors and nurses, scientists and academics, writers and adminstrators, refrigeration engineers and engravers, teachers and students. They play up to eight concerts a year concentrating largely on the romantic repertoire. But they have also championed new works such as John Dankworth's Clarinet Concerto and George Lloyd's Symphonic Mass. They play Bach and Haydn too. Apart from venues in and around Cambridge they have given concerts in Ely, Peterborough and Norwich. In 2001 they travelled to Amersfoort in Holland for a performance of Haydn's Creation with the Amersfoort Choral Society, and in January 2004 they joined forces with the Brussels Choral Society for an all-Berlioz concert in Belgium.
