Cambridge University Musical Society continued the celebrations of the University’s 800th anniversary with a tour of Tuscany in August. This ambitious undertaking took the Chorus and CUMS I orchestra, 130 performers in all, to venues in Florence, and the surrounding area, where they performed under the batons of their Principal Conductor Stephen Cleobury and recent Cambridge graduates Mark Austin and Joseph Fort. Highlights included a performance of Dvorak’s New World Symphony in the shadow of Siena Cathedral and a triumphant rendition of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in the magnificent surroundings of the Salone dei Cinquecento in Florence’s Palazzo Vecchio. The tour was organised by Chorus and Orchestra managers Caroline Goulder and Mark Austin with Dr John Barber of King’s College, and generously supported by the Fondazione del Bianco and James Bradburne of Palazzo Strozzi.
