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.
Meetings are held in The Dryburgh Hall, Putney Leisure Centre, Dryburgh Road, at the junction with Upper Richmond Road, Putney, SW15 1BL.
• Monday 3 November
• Monday 17 November
• Monday 1 December
• Monday 15 December
Meetings usually take place fortnightly on Monday evenings at 8.00 p.m. from September to April. They last for about two hours with a short interval when tea, coffee & wine are available.
Putney Music was founded in 1950 by the critic and writer, Ralph Hill. It began as a Gramophone Society, which has October 25, 2014 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.
Visitors: temporary membership per meeting £5.00
Young persons under 18 FREE
Additional donations to the Society are always welcome.
