Concert History



The following concerts have been presented in recent years. An asterisk indicates Malcolm Sargent Concerts, concerts given jointly with members of the choirs of Stamford Endowed Schools. From 2001 our May concerts have generally been performed in Peterborough Cathedral, which can easily accommodate a large choir and orchestra. Christmas concerts are usually performed in Stamford School Hall and give a greater opportunity for audience participation.
