Chris tells us a little about the Cambridge University Trumpet Ensemble:
The Cambridge University Trumpet Ensemble was formed in 2014 by Christopher Lawrence (Bursar of Wolfson College), who coaches the ensemble. The group is a member of the Instrumental Awards for Chamber Music scheme, and has performed in venues throughout the Collegiate University, including King’s College Chapel for the launch event of the University’s ‘Dear World…’ fundraising campaign, and the Senate House for the award of an Honorary Degree to His Excellency Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations.

We have a new Exhibition in place to celebrate Spring, the latest in our Feasts and Festivals theme. The fair Shares Café will be open to tempt you with home-cooked lunches, snacks, cakes and puddings – if you are planning to attend the concert and have lunch do come early; or eat afterwards. Groups welcome, preferable with prior notice.
