Special Events

Happy Birthday CMA!

Watch this space for special 5th anniversary events coming up this year!…

Choral Concert

This concert was an inspiration. All choirs from year 3-13 performed together, and three international opera singers added their voices to the event, witnessed by an awestruck audience and the composers of two of the songs performed. Not one to be forgotten!

Stringfest 2018: a celebration of strings

In collaboration with local string orchestra, Chiltern Camerata, directed by Sam Laughton, the string players of CMA kicked off the 5th anniversary concert series with Stringfest on Saturday 1st December, exploring some of the most exciting and beloved string repertoire in a celebration of the genre.


Snow stopped play in February, but the irrepressible bands of CMA set the hall buzzing in their celebratory concert on Sunday 28th April. It was an inspiration to see all the brass, woodwind and percussion players, from the youngest to the oldest, playing together. Bravo!
