20-21 season


Dear CMS Supporter

I am delighted to announce that Cheltenham Music Society will return to life with a recital by Clare Hammond in the Town Hall on Tuesday 15 June at 3pm.  This will be a one-hour concert with no interval.  Clare’s programme will be: 

Hélène de Montgeroult – Selection from Etudes 

Brahms – 6 Piano Pieces, Op. 118 (26’)

Karol Szymanowski – Variations on a Polish Theme, Op. 10 

Tickets will be £18 each, including free programme notes, and can be booked on the Town Hall website.
Alternatively you can book in person via the customer contact team at the Leisure Centre in Tommy Taylor’s Lane or by phone on 01242 528764.  The Town Hall box office is still closed.

Seating at the Town Hall will be socially distanced and face masks must be worn.

I am also very pleased to say that we have a full programme ready for the 2021-22 season starting in October.  We will launch the programme and begin ticket sales as soon as the position on Covid-19 control measures is clear, which I hope will be in June.   We will let you know as soon as that happens.

David Pepper

This concert will be 1 hour long with no interval.
