The Academy of
Great St. Mary’s
symphony orchestra

The orchestra draws players and audiences from across Cambridge giving four concerts a year, and is part of our outreach ministry aspiring to convey through the beauty of music, the grace of God.One concert a year is held with the choirs in December.It comprises around 40 players and performs a range of music from symphonies to concertos to chamber works.  From time to time an international soloist joins us to play a major concerto, usually on the University of Cambridge Alumni weekend who are delighted to include the concert in their programme for the weekend.  The orchestra is ecumenical in its membership and contributes to musical education in Cambridgeshire.Adam Pounds founded the orchestra in 2007 and also conducts the Stapleford Choral Society.   The Academy orchestra accompanies them in their concerts, usually comprising major oratorios or requiems, and thus takes our outreach to villages and churches around Cambridge.Contact David Carter  <>
