Combo CAM – Care About Music

Combo CAM Instrumente

The ensemble Combo CAM, founded in fall 2016 in Leipzig, Germany, is dedicated prevailingly to baroque music from France, Italy, Spain, and South America and music from other cultural areas. Viola Blache, Friederike Merkel, babett Niclas, Antje Nuernberger, Martin Steueber, and Hannes Malkowski met through college in Leipzig. They presented their first program ‘The Real Baroque Book – Standards and other Secret Hits from the 17th century from France, Italy, Spain, and South America’ at the youth competition SPIELWIESE of the Cologne Festival for Early Music. For this performance, the ensemble ventured to enter new cabaret territory and led the fictional character Doris Meeresbuechner guide through the program with her unique, lovable, yet odd manners. Combo CAM won this competition and is since guest at different festivals.

Combo CAM is ready to accept new challenges, re-interpret and combine early music with the unusual.

Currently, the ensemble is developing a new program addressing the genius Leonardo da Vinci as well as it is working on an arrangement of Bach's Goldberg Variationen.

"Welcome ladys and gentlemen to the Leiziger Völkerschlachtdenkmal! Leipzig - thank God - is not only a city of battleships and heros but also full of music. Therefore it is no surprise that exactly here the ensemble Combo CAM began - young people who put their heart into early music. Let us, you and I, have a look behind the scenes and observe Combo CAM and how they work..."
