Build a musical legacy at the Corn Exchange 

This year, we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of orchestral music at the Corn Exchange: three glorious decades of the best orchestras, conductors and soloists performing in the heart of Cambridge.
If you love orchestral music as much as we do, and would like to ensure this legacy continues for another thirty years, please consider making a donation with your subscription or ticket purchase.
If every audience member gave £30 this season, that would prove beyond a doubt that Cambridge not only values classical music, but stands behind it, ready to secure a bright future for the next generation of musicians and audience members.
