Welcome to Malvern Concert Club

Cancellation of Concerts

Regrettably, but inevitably, our forthcoming concerts to the end of June have now been cancelled:

  • April 17: 'Coffee & Cake' morning concert at Elmslie House (Ruisi Quartet),
  • April 30: Thursday evening concert in the Forum, Malvern Theatres (New London Chamber Ensemble),
  • June 10: Wednesday evening concert in the Forum, Malvern Theatres (Tasmin Little and Martin Roscoe).

We will keep you updated from time to time about this concert and other important matters, the latter including:

  • the question of refunds,
  • the renewal of membership for the 2020-21 season,
  • the holding of the AGM (scheduled for July 2).

However, it may take us some while to work out exactly how to deal with each of these issues. So please bear with us during this stressful and difficult time of unknown but possibly prolonged length.

The coronavirus crisis has capped what has already been a rather extraordinary season. Thank you for your support of 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.
