Welcome to the Chester Music Society website. We have  been engaged in the promotion and performance of classical music in the City of Chester since 1946 and are committed to providing direct musical involvement and enjoyment for many, particularly by bringing increased musical experience to the rising generation. As a Charity our objectives are to provide, maintain, improve and advance education in the widest sense of the word by furthering public appreciation of music. We present more than 20 concerts and musical events in Chester each year; our concert season begins in October and continues through May.
