Welcome to Welshpool Music Club

We bring high quality professional musicians to Welshpool in an annual season of five chamber music concerts so that local people can attend live music recitals that they would otherwise have to travel much further afield to see. Our concert season normally runs from October to March each year, and we are fortunate in that we are able to hold all concerts in Welshpool Methodist Church, which has excellent acoustics. The Club is a registered charity managed by a Committee of volunteers, and as a charity we are governed by a Constitution reporting to members of the Club through an Annual General Meeting at which all members are encouraged to express their views.

To launch our 79th concert season after the long shut-down enforced by the pandemic, we are holding our next AGM on Thursday 21 October at 7pm in Welshpool Methodist Church, before the first concert of our new season, and members are asked to attend to express their views for the future running of the Club. Our first concert of our 2021/22 Season will then follow on, when pianist

Lara Melda

will bring us a programme of Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev.  Lara came to prominence when she won the BBC Young Musician of the Year title in 2010;  she went on to graduate with First Class honours from the Royal College of Music in 2016 and has since been building a celebrated professional career.  Tickets available at the door:  £12  (£6 for students)

This concert is being dedicated in gratitude to the memory of

Joan Upton-Holder  (1938-2020)

Teacher, pianist and organist, who played such a major role in the music life of the district.  She is sadly missed.
