Welcome to the
Oxshott & Cobham Music Society
This is the 80th season of this prestigious society devoted to promoting the very best of classical musical performance, from recent graduates to the celebrated stars of the international scene.
We offer a variety of chamber music, from solo recitals to string quartets and larger ensembles, with occasional pre-concert talks about the music to be performed (the first one this season being on 4 December). All concerts are held in Holy Trinity Church, Claygate, Surrey, which has excellent acoustics.
We celebrated our return to live music in September 2021 with a very successful Mini Festival: three concerts in one week! The Mithras Piano Trio (BBC New Generation Artists), rising star Coco Tomita, violin, and finally Catriona McDermid, bassoon, with the Florian String Quartet (in the presence of contemporary composer Nicola LeFanu), provided a very exciting start to the season. To follow, we have seven more concerts of world-class music in our autumn and winter main season (including an extra, fundraising concert with a Viennese tea in the New Year).
For reviews of our concerts (including the Mithras Trio, Spiritato! Ensemble, Jonian Ilias Kadesha, and the Castalian Quartet) click on "Concert reviews", below.
LATEST UPDATE (20.12.21): it is with regret and disappointment that we have had to take the decision to postpone our January event (a New Year concert and tea party) in view of the current COVID situation. We plan to reschedule it when circumstances permit, possibly in summer 2022.
