This work 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.

Bridges Over the River Cam was commissioned by Cambridge Youth Concert Band with the help of Eastern Arts Association. The first performance of this work was given by the Cambridge Youth Concert Band, conducted by the composer, at the Concert Hall of Cambridge University Music School, May 13, 1990.
