Chester Music Society
The Chester Music Society is based in the City of Chester in the North West of England and has been engaged in the promotion and performance of live classical music in Chester since 1946.
The Society comprises four sections: Celebrity Concerts; Club Concerts; Choir; and Youth Choirs. We present more than 20 concerts and musical events in Chester each year. Our concert season begins in October and continues through July.
Check out the Concert Calendar for details of this season's concert programme. We are sure you will find many events here to suit all tastes for classical music and you'll be warmly welcomed at any of our concerts.
The Celebrity Concerts section promotes six concerts each year of high quality performances, mainly of chamber music, by both established and rising professional musicians. An opportunity to hear current and future stars.
The Chester Music Society Choir is a community choir of 170 members giving performances of major choral classics in Chester Cathedral. New members in all voice parts are always welcome to attend rehearsals prior to audition.
The Chester Music Society Club is a section where you can hear a wide variety of musical events in an informal and friendly atmosphere. Many of the performers are from local specialist schools and music colleges.
The Youth Choirs exist to promote a lifelong enjoyment of music and singing in young people. The Youth Choir takes young people from age 9 to 18. Preludes, its training choir, takes children from 7 to 11 years. The Alumni Choir is an occasional choir of ex-members.
Each season the Chester Music Society organises a number of musical events in Chester in the form of workshops and competitions. The 3 principal events are: the Chester Young Musicians of the Year Competition; a Choral Workshop; and a Chamber Music Workshop.
