Welcome to Malvern Concert Club

Ever since its first concert on 31 October 1903, Malvern Concert Club, founded by Sir Edward Elgar, has been a cornerstone of musical life in Worcestershire. Over one hundred years later, today’s Concert Club is proud to continue that tradition of bringing the best chamber music to this part of the country. Whilst grounded in the tradition of the string quartet, each season brings a varied selection of music for small ensemble, with and without keyboard, and voice. Our performers are British and overseas musicians of international standing, with a balance of established artists and promising newcomers.

115th Season 2017-18

This year Malvern Concert Club brings you an exciting season of concerts. These include:

  • Our regular series of Thursday evening concerts
  • Our President's Series concert
  • Trips to Symphony Hall, Birmingham

All our concerts are open to members and non-members. Evening concerts are on Thursdays at 7.30pm in The Forum, Malvern Theatres.

116th Season 2018-19

Malvern Concert Club's 116th season brings another regular series of six Thursday evening concerts in The Forum, Malvern Theatres. We also present the third, and last, of our President's Sunday afternoon recitals devoted to the three major song cycles of Schubert.

The Club's 116th season is a special one, as it celebrates the centenary of our founder's three major chamber works. Elgar's String Quartet, Piano Quintet and Violin Sonata were all composed in 1918 and received their premieres in 1919. All three are being performed at our final concert of this season on 2 May 2019.

We also continue our regular coach trips from Malvern to afternoon concerts in Symphony Hall, Birmingham
