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 the 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 17 October: The Benyounes String Quartet
Over the last decade the Benyounes Quartet has forged a reputation for fresh, vivid performances and interpretations of refinement and integrity. The Quartet’s international accolades include prizes at International String Quartet competitions, and they have established a presence at major venues including Wigmore Hall, King’s Place, Vienna Konzerthaus, Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Purcell Room, and at various festivals in Britain, Eire and Europe. They last played for us in 2013, and it is exciting to welcome them back. They will be playing the following programme:
Joseph Haydn: String Quartet no 76/1 in G major
Felix Mendelssohn: String Quartet in E Flat opus 12
Claude Debussy: String Quartet in G minor opus 10
