Welcome to Leicester Music Society Season 70
We are a friendly group of people keen to learn more about music from composers, performers and others with expert musical knowledge.
Our entertaining and informative illustrated talks are usually held on the second Tuesday of each month from October through to May, although we sometimes move to a different Tuesday to avoid clashes with musical events in Leicester.
In June there is an opportunity to hear a selection of recordings that have taken the fancy of the Society’s officers after business is taken care of in a short AGM.
Notable speakers in the past have included the composers John Rutter, Will Todd, George Lloyd and Geoffrey Bush; former Director of the BBC Proms Robert Ponsonby; eminent oboist Lady Barbirolli; Denis Matthews, noted pianist and Professor of Music; Annetta Hoffnung, widow of the much-missed Gerard; Edward Greenfield, critic and broadcaster; distinguished conductor Sir Norman del Mar; Peter Cropper, late leader of the Lindsay String Quartet.
Popular regular speakers include Dr. Donald Hunt, Stephen Varcoe and Malcolm Goldring.
We are a member of the Federation of Recorded Music Societies.
