Cockermouth Music Society


Cockermouth Music Society’s 25th 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 26 February 2019.

There are two kinds of membership.  A subscription ticket (£90) brings membership plus access to all seven professional concerts, members’ and young persons’ concerts.  Ordinary membership costs £12 (£5 for 18 and under) and this brings reduced prices for tickets.  Tickets can be bought by non-members for all events either on the door or at Billy Bowman Music

Subscription members will be able to bring a non-member to one concert in the season absolutely free of charge.  Please show your 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.  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.
