ELGAR: SYMPHONY NO.2
Saturday 18 March West Road Concert Hall 8.00pm
Shchedrin Concerto for Orchestra No.1, ‘Naughty Limericks’ R. Strauss Death and Transfiguration Elgar Symphony No.2
CUMS Symphony Orchestra Jamie Phillips conductor
For their final concert of Lent Term, CUMS Symphony Orchestra presents a bold and dramatic programme under the baton of Jamie Phillips.
Phillips is one of the most exciting and energetic young professional conductors of today, who has built a strong guest conducting profile including engagements with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and many more. He has been described on Bachtrack as having “an uncommon ability to pick up a familiar piece by the scruff of its neck and shake invigorating new life into it.”
Don’t miss this striking programme, ranging from Shchedrin’s witty ‘Naughty Limericks’ to Strauss’s portrayal of an artist on his deathbed in ‘Death and Transfiguration’, and finishing with Elgar’s Symphony No.2, a gigantic work full of musical and emotional contrast. Tickets for the last two CUMS SO concerts have sold out, so be sure to book your ticket in advance!

IN[SCI]TE is an interdisciplinary Science, Technology, and Engineering conference based in Cambridge University.
IN[SCI]TE is run by undergrads, and the talks will be both delivered by and aimed at undergrads. Our student speakers will be presenting the results of research they have done, as well as sharing experiences from STEM internships. Several Keynote speakers will be giving talks as well.
The aim is to give Cambridge undergraduates the opportunity to speak on their research as well as to draw undergraduates' attention towards the blurry boundaries between different disciplines of science, and to illustrate to them how scientific research in this area transforms into real-life applications.
IN[SCI]TE will be held on 18th - 19th March 2017, at the Old Divinity School of St. John's College, Cambridge.

MARCH FOR SCIENCE
Hello everyone! On April 22nd, Earth Day, people all around the world will march for science. It will be a celebration of discovery, of reason, but it will also be a direct response to the recent devaluing and disparagement of scientific thought and progress.
We are organizing to get as many Cambridge people over to London for the march. Not just scientists, but anyone who values evidence-based decision making. Join us!
