Winchester Music Club


Winchester Music Club is a choir of some 100 members and an associated orchestra that has been performing concerts in Winchester for over 80 years. The Club typically performs two concerts a year, in November and spring, and hosts a Come and Sing, open to all.

Winchester Music Club was founded in 1925 by Sir George Dyson, then Master of Music at Winchester College. There is a  close link with the college: our current musical director, David Thomas, is also Master of Music there and we are joined each year for the November concert by the Winchester College Quiristers and Glee Club. The resulting choir of 200 or so singers performs major works in the magnificent setting of Winchester Cathedral.

The spring concerts, in March or April, sung by Winchester Music Club alone, tend to be of smaller-scale works.  Recently these have taken place in New Hall Winchester College, St Swithun’s Performing Arts Centre and Winchester Cathedral.

At all WMC activities children are under the care of either a representative of their school or a suitable adult nominated by their parent or guardian. No unaccompanied minors will be admitted to any event or activity organised by WMC.

Admission is by audition – please see
