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

For our January concert we are excited to present the Second Symphony of Kurt Weill the composer who will be more familiar to listeners as the creator of The Threepenny Opera or September Song. Not surprisingly some of the jazz idiom of the latter will be heard in his symphony. There will be a short suite by Alexander Borodin before Saint SaŽns’ massive Organ Symphony in which we are pleased to be introducing the church organ and organist to our programme of concerts for the first time.

Borodin, Petite Suite
