Clare College Cambridge

Clare Alternative Music Society

Besides its renowned choir and orchestra, Clare College is home to a great diversity of other musical talent.

As a society, we encompass all and any musical styles not under the umbrella of CCMS, ranging from rock and metal, through to acoustic and folk. In past years, CAMS has organised Open Mic Nights, and last year began running ‘Gatehouse Sessions’ - an opportunity to showcase acoustic talent in an intimate environment. In the coming year, we will be looking to expand these sessions, as well as adding a number of new events. We also have a bass guitar, drum kit, and keyboard which can be borrowed for practicing and gigging.

If you want to get a new band together, CAMS is a good place to start. If you want somewhere to try out your material as a singer-songwriter, CAMS is for you. If you want to put on a band night, we can help you out with organising it.
