Chairman’s Report

This has been another eventful year for CCMS. In addition to the regular recital series and Week 5 Blues gigs, there were a number of exciting masterclasses and events.

In Michaelmas, we held a vocal masterclass with Australian opera tenor Samuel Sakker, and at the end of term we had our annual Christmas concert, with performances from the orchestra, jazz, and voices ensembles.
