Roseland Music Society
Roseland Youth Music (RYM) is the educational branch of Roseland Music Society. It promotes musical activity among young people on the Roseland; provides professional musicians to work in local schools; enables students to experience live music of all types and see and hear a range of musical instruments being played, and offers them the opportunity to participate in practical workshops involving listening, composing, improvising, singing, playing and performing together.
(Registered Charity No: 1098140)
The idea of forming a society for the promotion of concerts and other musical events was first envisaged as a Millennium project in 1998. A small, determined group of classical music enthusiasts decided to proceed with the idea and a programme of events was formulated. The Roseland Music Society was born and is now a thriving charitable society and has a membership currently approaching 120.
The aim is to promote affordable live music with a regular programme of concerts, which include nationally and internationally known performers, ensembles and choirs.
Membership, presently costing £10, entitles one to a £3.00 reduction on each ticket purchased during the year.
We welcome new members and enquiries should be made to the Membership Secretary.
Whilst we are a society with members, our concerts are public. We warmly welcome non-members who account for a very significant proportion of our ticket sales.
Our concerts generally take place at Portscatho Memorial Hall, normally starting at 7.30pm. They are held on a Friday or Saturday evening. Students are admitted at a reduced price, and any schoolchild of 16 and under when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult will be admitted free of charge. We provide a licensed bar offering the choice of specially selected wines, beers and soft drinks. The bar is open prior to the concert and during the interval.
