About Us

The Richmond Concert Society gives you the opportunity to hear classical music concerts of a high professional standard in pleasant local settings.

A membership fee is paid once per season, entitling the member to attend any or all of the concerts in the season. Members pay no additional amount for concerts attended. So if you attend ten full-length concerts, your average cost per concert is £4.50 — hard to beat! There is also a shorter concert after the AGM.

The society is enjoying its 61st season, and is a registered charity (No. 289897).

Muriel Dawson RCS Composition Award

Each year, the society commissions a new piece from a student composer. The new composition is premiered, alongside other works, following our Annual General Meeting in July. Read more
