Welcome to the Welshpool Music Club website
We bring professional performers to Welshpool five times a year so that local people can attend musical recitals that they would otherwise have to travel much further afield to see. Our concert season runs from October to March each year.
Enrol for membership at the door for our first professional concert of our 76thSeason on Thursday 11 October 2018. Membership costs £40 (£5 for students), and gives entry to 5 concerts in the Season, which runs from October to March. The full concert programme can be found by clicking on “Events” on the web site.
We are a registered charity, and depend on our membership subscriptions for the funding to continue our concert programmes and so encourage as many people as possible to subscribe, but for people who for one reason or another are unable to attend all our concerts, tickets will be available at the door for individual performances at £10 each (students £2)
All concerts begin at 7.30pm, and are held at Welshpool Methodist Church unless otherwise stated
NEXT CONCERT: 15 November 2018
Beethoven in Wales:
Mary Hofman (violin) and
Richard Ormrod (piano)
The Beethoven in Wales project was initiated by Rhyl Music Club together with the locally resident violin and piano duo Mary Hofman and Richard Ormrod. This ambitious project of performing the complete cycle of Beethoven’s ten sonatas for violin and piano at three concerts across nine music clubs in Wales was planned to demonstrate the vibrant contribution music clubs make to Welsh cultural life, and as part of each concert Mary and Richard have commissioned a new work by a Welsh composer to give a new perspective on Beethoven and to showcase some of the wonderful female composers’ voices coming from Wales today. Welshpool’s concert will feature a new sonata by Aberdyfi-based composer Rhian Samuel, together with Beethoven’s three Sonatas opus 12, and the wonderful Spring Sonata, Opus 24.
