The Holmes Chapel Music Society, a friendly amateur group, presents a professional classical music concert every month from October to May at the Clonter Opera Theatre, Swettenham Heath. We are always pleased to welcome the general public to join us at these events, you do not have to be a member.
Concerts are performed by excellent professional musicians both from Britain and abroad and most are on Saturday afternoon. However, a special 50th Anniversary Celebratory Concert has been arranged for May 2022 in the evening. Our artists comprise soloists, usually with an accompanist, or various groups – quartets, trios, etc. Many of our artists, most of them with high international reputations can be heard on BBC3 and Classic FM.
We usually have one or two young professional artists each season. Young players whose promise has already been recognised in the world of music, who come and play for us as they seek to establish themselves. The music we hear is quite wide ranging and fairly catholic in taste. Society membership is over 200 and drawn from quite a wide catchment area of mid/south Cheshire and north Staffordshire. Goostrey is well represented.
The HCMS website www.themusicsociety.org.uk is worth inspection; it contains information about concerts and ticket prices but also details of the artists and music. Tickets too can be booked from our website. For details see our leaflet or the website. Leaflets are available in the local libraries and information centres.”
