Welcome to the
Maidenhead Music Society
2020-2021 - 74th Season
Presenting professional classical music concerts in Maidenhead
The Maidenhead Music Society furthers the development of music in the Maidenhead area by presenting a series of professional classical concerts each year. All general concerts are open to the public, and anyone joining as a Member of the Society may qualify for occasional special private events.
Since 2000, the home of Maidenhead Music Society has been the Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, an ideal venue for the concert series, and a place in which the artists say they love playing. As well as a great acoustic and a quite outstanding Steinway piano, it offers excellent social facilities.

Live concerts with streaming
We were very pleased to return to Norden Farm for the first concert of the 2020-2021 season on 29th October. This concert took place in the Courtyard Theatre under socially distanced conditions and was also streamed live from Norden Farm. The performers were the Brompton Quartet, a young quartet from the Royal College of Music.
We regret that owing to the enforced closure of Norden Farm, the second concert planned for November 19th, entitled 'Immortal', has been cancelled. It would have been an evening celebrating Beethoven, with music by Beethoven played by Piers Lane, and Jessica Duchen reading from her biographical novel. It would also have been streamed live.
We have provisionally engaged artists for concerts in 2021, including the Daphnis Wind and Piano Ensemble, the Busch Piano Trio, and BBC New Generation Artists, the Consone String Quartet. Then for our celebrity concert in May, we have re-booked The Heath Quartet with friends to make up to a string sextet.
