Putney Music is a society of music lovers who meet fortnightly from September to April to hear some of the world’s most celebrated musicians talk about their lives and work. Guest speakers come from all fields of music – the concert hall, recital platform, opera, ballet, television and film; and also include producers, broadcasters, critics and writers.
Putney Music was founded in 1950 by the critic and writer, Ralph Hill. It began as a Gramophone Society, which has grown and developed over the years to become a much admired forum where members and visitors can meet internationally renowned musicians in an informal setting.
The Society enjoys a membership of over two hundred members, some of whom have a considerable knowledge of music while others have very little, but all share a great love of music.
Putney Music extends a welcome to everyone. For young people, especially those studying music, meetings provide a rare opportunity to learn from great musicians how they approach their work, triggering ideas and inspirations that could last a lifetime. For the older person, it offers a unique experience of meeting and learning from the private person behind the public image.
Annual Subscription is £30.00
Visitors: temporary membership per meeting £8.00
Young persons under 18 FREE
Additional donations to the Society are always welcome.
