Please join us on Tuesday evening for this term’s Music Society Concert. We are delighted to present the winners of this term’s Peterhouse Music Society Award, the Campion Quartet (named after Petrean poet and composer Thomas Campion), to perform Haydn’s ‘Razor’ quartet – supposed, so legend goes, to be considered by the composer as his ‘best quartet’ and offered to the music publisher John Bland in 1789 in exchange for a pair of English razors. We also welcome Zac Moxon to perform a selection of works for the Bassoon by Mozart, Telemann and Elgar.

 

 

Our Lent Term Concert in 2017 took place on Friday 2 March at 7.30pm in the Peterhouse Theatre, featuring performances by winners of this term's Peterhouse Music Society Awards who were joined by the brilliant virtuoso Vassilis Varvaresos. You can watch videos of the performances on our website here.
