The Edinburgh Society of Musicians is an organisation which promotes practical music-making in Edinburgh. It has been in existence since 1887. Chamber music recitals are given every Saturday evening at 7.30pm from early October until the end of June. Its stated objects include "cultivating the art and practice of music in Edinburgh, and promoting social intercourse amongst musicians and those interested in music." The historical archive and music collection of the society was purchased by the National Library of Scotland in 1982.
The Society attracts a variety of performers from students in search of experience to accomplished amateurs and professionals, well known Scottish or international musicians. If you would like to perform for us, please contact Dr Kingsley and include your telephone number. We will get in touch with you. Please note that we do not pay fees although we can help with expenses.
There is a modest annual membership subscription fee but the concerts are open and admission is free. In the course of the season, members have the opportunity to hear a wide range of compositions including musical rarities and occasional first performances. If you are interested in becoming a member and have any questions, please contact Graham Bodenham or use the online membership form (you will need to print it, fill it in and post it back).
