Why join . . .

Who we are

There are two organisations with similar names promoting top-quality music in the Wye Valley area. Wye Valley Music (we used to refer to ourselves as St Briavels Music Society) has a year-round programme of events. Wye Valley Chamber Music, under different management, holds its nine-day Festival in January.

WVM, locally based, engages top artists in a wide variety of genres and musical content. WVCM is London-based and calls on a regular group of fine musicians who return year after year. The two organisations cooperate but they maintain separate identities, administrations and web sites. You can support both, but this is our invitation to you to become a member of Wye Valley Music.

What we do

We promote concerts most months (except when WVCM are in action). Our 'Music-in-June' concert series

is now (May 2013) in its fifth year and we will be ready to announce our programme for the 2013/2014 season before very long.

We try to foster a culture of concert-going in our beautiful, rural area and work with other music societies to make information on their activities more widely available. Our web-site carries a calendar of chamber music events over a wide area.

Benefits of membership

  • Members get reduced-rate entry to concerts put on by WVM. In 2013/14 this amounted to more than a dozen superb events;
  • As well as using the web-site, which is available to all, you get regular updates on events by e-mail;
  • Members have an opportunity to influence the way WVM is run and are encouraged to help run it.
