    Bridges Over the River Cam portrays the reflections of the composer during his life as an undergraduate. All the elements of student life are featured; walks along the river, the organist lending his fugue a touch of bravura, leading to a reverie with changing meter, even a gentle hint of romance. This tuneful overture is certainly not too serious and allows all the members of the band to enjoy themselves.
