The Big Party!

It’s almost time for our summer open day. All are welcome at this free event, a chance to experience the buzz of CMA while having lots of summer fun!

The CMA ensembles will be playing in a series of informal performances both inside and out, while the attendees enjoy the games, activities and refreshments on offer. There will also be the opportunity for youngsters to try an instrument- maybe you want to join a Find Your Forte class in September? With a barbecue and a bouncy castle too, there’s something for everyone at the Big Party!

We hope to see you at Wycombe High School on Saturday 7th July from 10.30am.

Vienna Tour

The 2018 tour to Vienna has been confirmed for Friday 20th to Friday 27th July 2018. Concert Band, Symphony Orchestra, Senior Jazz Band and Youth Choir will be involved. The tour will include formal performances for each group as well as sight-seeing opportunities and leisure time. Vienna’s proximity to Slovakia means that we will also have time visit Bratislava and our return journey will take us to Markt Schierling in Germany for a grand musical finale!

Side-By-Side…Royal Holloway Logo

Building on the exciting partnership forged last year, Royal Holloway University of London Symphony Orchestra continues to work with CMA Symphony Orchestra.

Schools’ Proms

Following the National Festival of Music for Youth, the CMA Symphony Orchestra has been selected to perform TWICE at the Royal Albert Hall this Autumn. On Wednesday 11th October, the massive auditorium was filled with primary age children, who were blown away by the orchestra’s powerful rendition of Holst’s Mars.





The orchestra wowed the audience with their performance of the last movement of Shostakovich 5 in the final act of the last night of the Schools Proms on Wednesday 15th November, owning the stage as they went on to lead 1000 performers in the massed finale item by Pete Letanka especially commissioned for the occasion.
