Faculty of Music

Wind Quintet

The ‘performance community’ at the University of Cambridge and in Cambridge more generally is vast – in fact, so large that it would be impossible to list the names of everyone who is involved in it. Key members of the Faculty of Music with a prominent performance role include Professor John Rink (Professor of Musical Performance Studies and Director of the Cambridge Centre for Musical Performance Studies), Professor Margaret Faultless (Director of Performance and Artistic Director of the Collegium Musicum, among other roles), Dr Sam Barrett (Director of the Instrumental Awards Scheme), Dr Martin Ennis (Associate Director of the CMPS and Artistic Director of the Collegium Musicum, among other roles) and Affiliated Lecturers Andrew Arthur and Dr Edward Wickham.

Other leading contributors include College Directors of Music, the conductors and music directors of the many ensembles in Cambridge, composers in residence, the large complement of performance teachers either in Cambridge itself or in London and elsewhere, and so on. Together, this ‘team’ has as many members as several music colleges put together. It is one of many reasons why Cambridge has an unrivalled reputation as a world-leading centre for music, and it is also why so many of its graduates – in Music as well as in other subjects – develop highly successful careers as instrumentalists or singers.
