‘Formed in 2007 - a chamber choir of 24 to 30 singers from Saffron Walden and Cambridge, and the surrounding area. We perform a wide variety of music from the renaissance to the present day, much of it a cappella, and our programmes often juxtapose music in contrasting styles. We enjoy exploring the acoustics of the historic churches we sing in, sometimes using less obvious performing spaces to unusual effect.’

 

‘The Silver Band is currently ranked nationally as a Championship Section brass band and performs in concerts and contests across the region ... Haverhill Youth & Community Band is a supporting group that has its own engagements and helps train players for the Silver Band ... The aim of this band is to train players to the standard where they can join the senior band and so maintain the long tradition and high standard of brass playing in Haverhill. We also, however, hope to give all the players an enthusiasm for playing and for brass bands that they can take with them wherever they go.‘

'From accomplished choralists to tuneful have-a-go singers, HCS attracts a large (and growing) crowd. The one thing we have in common is our love of singing. Some members have been with us over 30 years, others only joined at the last rehearsal. As a newcomer you will naturally be sitting amongst more experienced members, only too willing to make your first few visits much smoother. We aim to entertain with an average of three main concerts per calendar year. Alongside are a number of social events; held both for our own entertainment and for the general public ... In October 2017, Haverhill Choral Society changed its name to “Haverhill Singers” to reflect the wide range of music, beyond the traditional choral repertory we perform, whilst still retaining the historical connection to Haverhill.’

‘Based in Linton, Cambridgeshire. We love playing popular tunes for charity.  We hope you enjoy our music or come and join us.  We’d love to hear from you ... Linton Jazz was established in 1999 and has grown from strength to strength every since. We started the band with just a handful of youngsters, little suspecting that ... we would be still be going strong with around 30 regular players and quite a reputation locally. A few of our members have been there since the beginning, but our focus on including young people, a central part of our ethos, means that there is a lot of turnover as members grow up and move on to college and University. The most important ingredient of success for us has not been the quality of the playing, though we certainly do our best, but to have fun.’

 

Founded 1883: ‘With professional orchestras and soloists, we undertake a broad repertoire from Renaissance and Baroque works to contemporary pieces – mostly drawn from the large choral and orchestral repertoire but with occasional smaller works and a capella singing ... Saffron Walden’s youth choir SignuptoSing is now an important part of the Choral Society family’.

'An award-winning theatre group which presents popular musicals, operas and light operettas ... The company presents two shows a year through its adult group and its youth wing ... In its history there is hardly a show that SWMTC has not tackled, performing works by all the major musical theatre composers ...'

 

‘We generally perform 4-5 concerts each year, in and around Saffron Walden ... We do not audition members, but do ask for a minimum standard (generally at least grade six depending on the instrument). We are always pleased to hear from string and brass players in particular ... While many of our players travel some distance to play with us, we are of course particularly interested to hear from orchestral musicians who live near Saffron Walden or in the district of Uttlesford ... Saffron Walden Orchestral Society ... oversees the running of both the Saffron Walden Symphony Orchestra (SWSO; previously known as Uttlesforde Orchestra) and the Saffron Walden Childrens Orchestra (SWCO).‘

'An award-winning 740-seat performance space built in the grounds of Saffron Walden County High School. The hall’s critically acclaimed acoustic and state-of-the-art facilities surpass many of the world’s more established venues ... Close to Saffron Walden’s historic town centre, the £10-million venue is the result of a partnership between the School and Yellow Car Charitable Trust and is believed to be the largest gift of its kind to a state school. Saffron Hall is becoming a vibrant cultural centre for the region, offering outstanding artistic encounters in an expanding programme that weaves international artists together with local performance groups and learning and participation activities.'
