Haslemere, situated in South West Surrey, has long been an important centre for music-making. Its chamber music society, HHH Concerts, presents a season of concerts in St Christopher’s Church, Wey Hill, Haslemere, GU27 1DD, a building with wonderful acoustics.
HHH Concerts was founded as the Haslemere, Hindhead and Headley Music Club in January 1934. Concerts at that time took place in members’ homes – typically these had large music rooms. Its change of name in 1993 marked a shift in style from an intimate club to a society promoting public concerts. Its aim is for music-lovers to hear outstanding performances locally, and to provide opportunities to young professional musicians.

Our aim is to offer training, and thereby to create opportunities, for talented young musicians who plan to make chamber music an important part of their career.
Each year we provide four residential courses which are completely free for the participants. They last for approximately ten days and are held in a beautiful converted barn in the heart of the Surrey countryside.
Aidan Woodcock, who founded the Trust in 2006, was a member of the London Symphony Orchestra. Music, in particular chamber music, was the great passion of his life and many of today’s professional musicians owe him an incalculable debt for the opportunities and encouragement he gave them. Aidan died in 2016 but his legacy lives on in the work of this charity.
Founded in 1998 by Wasfi Kani OBE, Grange Park Opera has staged more than 50 operas, including the acclaimed productions of Rusalka, Tristan und Isolde, Peter Grimes, and Fiddler on the Roof with Bryn Terfel at the BBC Proms.
Grange Park Opera held their last season at The Grange, in Hampshire, in 2016.
In 2017 the company relocated to West Horsley Place, Surrey. West Horsley Place is a 300-acre estate with a glorious, sprawling 15th century house surrounded by formal gardens with secret corners, aged trees, box hedges and a majestic crinkle crankle wall.
The house was inherited in 2015 by author and broadcaster Bamber Gascoigne from his aunt Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe. He gifted the estate to the Mary Roxburghe Trust.
Cranleigh Choral Society is a friendly choir at the heart of the village community in Cranleigh, Surrey.
Members are able to take part in high level music making and to join in the varied social events which take place during the year.
Come along and join us whether as a singing member or as a member of our audience.
“A town of the size of Farnham should be proud to have an orchestra of this calibre…” (Farnham Herald)
The aim of Farnham Sinfonia is to play attractive music from the classical and romantic periods in combination with carefully chosen short works by 20th century British and contemporary composers who are insufficiently known.
