The Beethoven Society was founded in 1888 and has met without a break since then. The Society gives classical music concerts in aid of both local and national charities. We do not purely perform works by Beethoven; rather the name is kept as a tribute to the long and illustrious history of the orchestra.  We are a group of musicians dedicated to playing good music, enjoying ourselves, and helping to raise money for charities at the same time.

Please come and support us, see the About Us page to see Maps of our usual rehearsal and concert venues. If you've never been to our concerts before, come and try something different for free. If you have, we hope you enjoyed our concerts and will keep supporting us.

We currently have vacancies for string players. If you are interested please contact us by telephoning our Membership Secretaries, Joan and Rosalind Corser, on 01706 378973 or Contact Us

Towards the end of March we will be playing a programme that contrasts the classical concision of Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro Overture
with the expansiveness of the late romantics, expansiveness of mood in Chausson’s Poeme de l’Amour et La Mer
and in time in Mahler’s Symphony No.1. In the Chausson we will have, for us, the unusual delight of accompanying a singer.


Mozart, Marriage of Figaro Overture

Chausson, Poeme de l’Amour et La Mer

Mahler, Symphony No.1
