More about the role

In Spring 2019 Kettle’s Yard reintroduced student lunchtime concerts after an extensive redevelopment project and filled every seat. We want the next programme to draw once again on the best of Cambridge’s student talent to deliver another series of showcase concerts, traditional or off-beat. Music has been played at Kettle’s Yard since Jim and Helen Ede lived here, and our Chamber and New Music series each enjoy an enthusiastic following.

Concerts have to take place punctually between 12.15 and 1pm on a Friday, and players must be made aware of this before committing. University tuition takes precedence.

The position is voluntary and is offered for a fixed term of one year.

The Student Music Programmer must appoint a deputy, to support them and step in in lieu, if necessary.
