Southampton Recorded Music Society


Interested in classical music?
Want to meet like-minded people?

Then please come and join us!



Southampton Recorded Music Society, which has been running very successfully for 68 years, provides an opportunity for people of all ages and backgrounds to share the enjoyment of classical music. Our regular meetings take the form of a speaker talking about his or her chosen subject and illustrating this with CDs (and the occasional DVD, Blu-ray and SACD) played on top quality Meridian, Oppo and KEF hi-fi equipment. We also organise musical quiz nights and other social gatherings.

Our guest speakers all have a professional musical background. Most other presentations are given by our own members.

Typically, we present a mixture of the familiar and the unjustifiably neglected. Look at our current programme to see what you are missing! Anyone is welcome to attend our meetings, which are friendly and informal. They provide an excellent way to hear the music of a wide variety of composers. It doesn’t cost much to join the society - but be prepared for frequent temptations to purchase more CDs for your own collection.

Don’t worry if your current knowledge of classical music is rather limited. Joining our society will soon change that!
