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 77th Season on Thursday 17 October 2019. 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 this web site.
We are a registered charity no 501838, 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
Thursday 21 November:
Tom Howells (clarinet), Matthew Howells (flute)
David Dodd (clarinet) and David Arthur (piano)
Local musicians Tom and Matthew Howells and David Dodd, all of whom starred in former years at Welshpool Music Club’s Young Musicians concerts, are returning as professionals to Welshpool together with pianist David Arthur to play a programme ranging from Beethoven to blues. Tom Howells graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2015 and is now a freelance clarinettist/saxophonist and teacher based in Cardiff. His brother Matthew plays the flute and is a Masters graduate from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland; David Dodd is also a Masters graduate from the Royal Welsh College, and now teaches and plays clarinet with many orchestras in the Bristol area, and David Arthur, a graduate of the Birmingham Conservatoire, as well as playing piano had his orchestral debut as a conductor last year. It is brilliant to see such talented young musicians progressing to successful professional careers, and it promises to be a gloriously entertaining evening.
