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

The concert will open with Dvorak’s dramatic tone poem The Noon Witch, the music for which is far more endearing than the story behind it. Hummel’s famous Trumpet Concerto follows. It is probably the best loved trumpet concerto after Haydn’s. The second half will be devoted to Tchaikovsky’s valedictory sixth symphony. This piece is, quite simply, one of the most moving in the entire repertoire.
