Cockermouth Music Society


Cockermouth Music Society’s 24th Season promises to be as interesting and exciting as any in the past with very accomplished musicians performing as soloists or as members of ensembles.  Once again, with the support of Orchestras Live we are able to offer an orchestral concert, the Northern Chamber Orchestra in Christ Church on 21 November.

The new season brings with it an initiative - subscription members will be able to bring a non-member to one concert in the season absolutely free of charge.  Please show you subscription card on entry. 

Cockermouth Music Society is a successful society and we want to make it even more successful for the benefit of artists and audiences alike.  Every year we provide a platform for local young musicians to perform in our Young Persons Concert, which this season is on March 27th. Later on there is the Members’ Concert when we invite members and other local musicians to entertain in a concert setting.  If you are interested in hearing live classical music in Cockermouth, please join the Society or be a member of the audience as often as you can.
