‘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.‘

‘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.’
