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

Emma Abbate & Julian Perkins
Piano for Four Hands
Emma Abbate and Julian Perkins have given keyboard duet recitals at many prestigious UK venues including the Royal Opera House, St George’s Bristol, Hatchlands Park and the Russell Collection. Engagements abroad have included the Mozart Society of America in Boston. They have recently released the second volume of Mozart’s complete piano duets on period instruments for Resonus Classics. This album has been highly praised by BBC Music Magazine. Their first volume was described by Early Music Review as “exemplary”, and represents the final recording made at Finchcocks Musical Museum. Future plans include the release of complete keyboard duets by Carl Maria von Weber on a original Viennese fortepiano for Deux-Elles in 2020.
They have called their programme, the first programme of duets we have staged at Welshpool, A Playful Tournament Duality, and will include music by Mozart, Clementi, Weber, Ravel, Dodgson and Greig; it promises to be a delight to cheer a January evening.
