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

Beethoven in Wales

Mary Hofman (violin) and Richard Ormrod (piano)

This is the second concert in the widely praised Beethoven in Wales project initiated by the locally-resident violin and piano duo Mary Hofman and Richard Ormrod in conjunction with Rhyl Music Club.    The 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.   This concert follows on Mary and Richard’s hugely enjoyable performance at Welshpool in 2018, and features three Beethoven sonatas:  the famous Kreutzer sonata Opus 47, together with Opus 23 and Opus 96, and a newly-commissioned piece by Welsh composer Hilary Tann, called “First Light”. Hilary’s music is widely praised for its lyricism and formal balance and has delighted audiences across the world, and it will be exciting to hear it together with the Beethoven that inspired it.
