About us

Oxshott and Cobham Music Society (OCMS) presents a season of six concerts of world-class chamber music across the winter months, usually from September or October through to March. 


Covering piano recitals, instrumental ensembles, and sometimes preceded by talks, our concerts are given by a variety of chamber ensembles and soloists, ranging from international stars to brilliant young musicians at the start of their careers. These have included rising stars such as pianists Benjamin Grosvenor, Eric Lu and Alim Beisembayev, and cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason. Other celebrated artists who have performed over the years include pianists Nikolai Demidenko, Steven Osborne and Simon Trpčeski, violinists Tasmin Little and Nicola Benedetti (then an outstanding student at the nearby Yehudi Menuhin School), cellist Steven Isserlis, the Dover Quartet (USA), Michael Collins (clarinet) – plus many more talented soloists and ensembles.

The Victorian Holy Trinity Church in Claygate, Surrey, with its excellent acoustics and comfortable seating, has been our home for the last 20 years or so. Concerts are held mainly on Saturday evenings.

We are a non-profit-making society run by volunteers and are always delighted to welcome new members. Membership offers a very significant saving on ticket prices. See How to join to find out more.

We are also assisted by sponsorship from charitable trusts and local businesses as well as ad-hoc donations. Our own members, singly or collectively, sometimes sponsor hire of the piano, for example. There are many ways in which essential help can be given. See Sponsors to find out more.

We hope you will join us!



The safety of our musicians, guests, members and volunteers is always paramount. We will follow Government guidance and implement any security measures that may be required.
